The noble Spanish surname Olmedo is of locative origin, being derived from the topographic or man made feature where the initial bearer resided. In this case, Olmedo 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 Olmedo was used to identify a person who lived in a place where many elm trees grew.

Olmedo Early Origins
