Where did the Spanish Gamero family come from? What is the Spanish Gamero family crest and coat of arms? When did the Gamero family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Gamero family history?

From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Gamero family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Camacho, Camachón, Camachon, Camachos, Camachuelo and others.

First found in Valencia, on Spain's Mediterranean coast.
