Spain, the earliest forms of hereditary surnames were 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 Manual is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry having derived from the Hebrew personal name Imanuel, which means God is with us.
