The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Gimenez. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is "ez."

Gimenez Early Origins



The surname Gimenez was first found in Old Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
