The origin of the Spanish surname Moncada is somewhat legendary, with a genealogy that begins with Hunno Velipho, descended from the German king Hercules, who lived in the year 400 A.D. He founded a castle near Barcelona named "Castillo de Monte Catalan." This castle is considered to be the "casa solar" or ancestral seat of the Mont-Cathaló family, whose name was corrupted over the years and became Moncada.
The surname Moncada was first found in the region of Catalonia in near the Pyrenees mountains.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Moncadas, Monacas, Montcadas and others.
