The origins of the Spanish surname Guitar are uncertain. In some instances, this surname may have originated from the personal name Guitert, which is in turn derived from the Germanic words "wid" and "hard" meaning "forest" and "strong." It may also have been derived from the word "kithara," the name of an ancient Greek stringed musical instrument, similar in some ways to a guitar.

Guitar Early Origins
