The distinguished Spanish surname Guajardo is of toponymic origin, being derived from the place where the original bearer lived or held land. In this instance the surname Guajardo is derived from the place name Guajar. "Guajar" is derived from the Arabic word "w zar" which denotes an "inaccessable mountain" or "refuge." This derivation of the place name "Guajar" is not unusual, since it was in southern Spain that the Arab influence on the Spanish language and culture was most profound.

The surname Guajardo was first found in Guajar, the name of three municipalities in the province of Granada, located in southern Spain. Early evidence suggests that the origins of the name come from a knight named Don Pedro Guajardo-Fajardo from the house of Santa María de Ortigueria in Galicia, who went on the conquest of Cordoba, and consequently established a house there.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Guajardo-Fajardo, Guajardos, Guajarda, Gujarda and others.
