Multiple Origins for the Surname Peno


Spanish


Noble surnames, such as Peno, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Peno, 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. The Peno family originally lived near a cliff or on a rocky patch of land. Ancient records reveal the name Peno is derived from the Spanish word "peña," which means "rock," "crag" or "cliff."

Peno Early Origins
