Multiple Origins for the Surname Olmeda


Spanish


The noble Spanish surname Olmeda is of locative origin, being derived from the topographic or man made feature where the initial bearer resided. In this case, Olmeda derives from the Castilian element "olmeda," in turn derived from a contraction of "olmo" meaning "elm tree," plus the suffix "eda," meaning "abundance." Thus, the surname Olmeda was used to identify a person who lived in a place where many elm trees grew.

Olmeda Early Origins



The surname Olmeda was first found in the Spanish province of Valladolid, in the Castilla la Vieja.
