The noble surname Izquierdo is of Spanish descent, and is derived from the word "izquierdo" meaning "left." The surname Izquierdo is of nickname origin, being derived from a physical characteristic of the initial bearer. The word "izquierdo" is ultimately of Basque/Celtic origin deriving from a combination of the Basque word "escu" meaning "hand" and the Celtic "kerros" meaning "left." In this instance, the nickname may have been applied, as an easy means of identification, to one who was left handed.

Izquierdo Early Origins



The surname Izquierdo was first found in the northeastern region of Aragon, before extending into most other regions of ancient Spain. However, evidence shows that the Izquierdo surname was also present in the Southern province of Murcia in the early Middle Ages.
