The Obregon surname derives from a place named Obregón, in Santander. The place name may derive from the Galician word "obriga" meaning "obligation," or perhaps from the Galician-Portuguese "obraguem" meaning "work."
The surname Obregon was first found in Santander. Some scholars suggest that the first to bear this family name was Lope Rodriguez de Obregón, a French prince, who founded the first house of this noble family in the Valley of Cayon, Santander.
