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.
The surname Gamero was first found in Valencia
, on Spain's Mediterranean coast.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Camacho, Camachón, Camachon, Camachos, Camachuelo and others.
