Origins Available: Italian, Spanish


Noble surnames, such as Montano, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Montano, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Montano family originally lived in a mountainous region of that province. This local name was originally derived from the Spanish word monte, which means hill or wooded upland.

Montano Early Origins



The surname Montano was first found in the Basque region of northern Spain.
