The word "paz" comes from the Latin "pax," meaning "peace." As a surname, Paz was often "assumed," and in some cases it comes from the religious title "María de la Paz" (The Virgin Mary). Alternatively, this surname may be of toponymic origin, derived from one of the hamlets and villages so named in the provinces of Lugo, Córdoba and Granada.
