The MacEda name was originally created from the name of an existing place, most likely from Macedo, in the province of Tras-Os-Montes, Portugal, or perhaps from Maceda or Maceo in Cavaleiros. As such, the MacEda surname is classified as being of habitation origin. The word "maceda" comes from the Castilian term "maceta," which comes in turn from the Latin "mattea," meaning "flowerpot."
