The Paniagua surname is of Spanish descent, and appears to be derived from a nickname. It was most likely a form of "Pan y agua," which means literally "bread and water." This sobriquet would have been applied to the medieval mendicants or travelers who went from town to town, asking for bread and water at various monasteries and manors.

Paniagua Early Origins



The surname Paniagua was first found in the mountainous regions of the ancient kingdom of Leon.
