The noble surname Hinojosa is of Spanish descent, and appears to be of toponymic origin. Toponymic surnames are those names which derive their origin from a particular place-name near which the original bearer lived or held land. In this instance, the surname Hinojosa is derived from the place-name Hinojo. The Spanish word "hinojo"is derived from the Latin "fenuculum" diminutive form of "fenum" meaning "hay."


Spelling variations of this family name include: Hinojos, Hinojosas, Hinojal, Inojar and others.

First found in Teruel, in the region of Aragon. The earliest records of the surname Hinojosa are found in the records of the Spanish Order of Carlos III.
