Noble surnames, such as Ocampo, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Ocampo, 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.
