Noble surnames, such as lamirand, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name lamirand, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because Spain was conquered by the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries. The lamirand family originally lived in one of the provinces of Oviedo, Lugo, Segovia, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife which is derived from the Spanish word marin, which means height or elevated position.

lamirand Early Origins



The surname lamirand was first found in Asturias, birthplace of the Christian Reconquest of Spain from the Muslims.

The Great Migration



Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Luis de Miranda, who accompanied Pedro de Mendoza to the Río de la Plata in 1534. He was present at the founding of Buenos Aires in 1536; and subsequently journeyed to Asuncion in Paraguay. He wrote a historical poem about the events that he had witnessed, making him one of the very first European poets of the New World. Another interesting chapter of family history dates from this same period, and illustrates the dangers of frontier life in the Americas: Lucía Miranda voyaged to Argentina in the 1530s with her husband Sebastián Hurtado. A local "cacique" or chief named Siripo became enamored of Lucía and kidnapped her. Sebastián allowed himself to be taken prisoner as well, just to be near his wife. Although they promised not to have any contact, Siripo found them together and put them both to death. Other early migrants bearing this surname or a variant spelling of the name were: Pero de Miranda, who sailed to America in 1510.
