Muniza History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Muniza. 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.
