An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The mountainous borders of Spain
contain the origins of the prestigious surname Giron. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames
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." The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common Spanish surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin as the Visigoths
between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries and accordingly had a profound impact on the development of surnames.
The surname Giron was first found in Castile
, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Girón, Giron, Girone, Jirón, Jiron and others.
