MacHado History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: French, Portuguese


The MacHado surname comes from the Portuguese word "machado," which means "axe." Family legend has it that in Medieval Portugal in 1147, after the Moors had taken the castle at Santarem, the Portuguese attacked the castle. Mendo Moniz and his two sons Pedro and Nono Mendes beat down the door with their hatchets and were the first to enter the besieged castle. In honor of the valiant deed, one of Pedro's sons, Martim Pires, was called "Machado" as a nickname, which was then taken on as the family surname. Martim lived during the reign of Alfonso II (1152-96), and was married to Maria Moniz.
