Hernandes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


The distinguished Spanish surname Hernandes is a proud sign of a rich and ancient heritage. 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; the most common patronymic suffix being "ez." The Hernandes name is derived from the Spanish elements "faro," meaning "journey" and "nano, " meaning "brave."

Much of the popularity of this name and its cognates is due to King Ferdinand III of Castile and Leon (1198-1252,) who, after leading much of the reconquest of Christian Spain from the Moors, was then canonized.
