Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


In Portugal, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that described a person's temperament or appearance were frequently used. Such nicknames sometimes became hereditary and were passed down as surnames onto further generations. The name Llop is thought to be derived from the Latin word "lupus," meaning "wolf."
