The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Similar to many Spanish patronymic names, the distinguished surname Manrique is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. Checking further we found the name was derived from the medieval given name Manrique, which is composed of the Germanic elements mann, which means man and ric, which means power. Thus, the name Manrique was given to a man of great strength and power.

Manrique Early Origins



The surname Manrique was first found in Old Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
