Origins Available: German, Spanish


From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Loza family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Loza is a nickname type of surname for a person who was in good health and who had an exuberant personality. The name Loza is derived Spanish word "lozano," which means "exuberant" or "vibrant."
