The distinguished surname Nievo is of Spanish origin and is derived from a nickname designated to the first bearer of the name. In this case, the surname derives from the Castilian word "nieto," meaning "grandson." As a nickname, "Nieto" referred to the grandson of an elderly person, well known in his community; most likely someone with profound knowledge, or one who held a certain professional position.

Nievo Early Origins



The surname Nievo was first found in the mountains of Leon. One of the most ancient families established in Castile with this surname was originally a Basque family from Dudagoitia, with their "casa solar," or ancestral family seat, in Bernagoitia.
