The distinguished Spanish surname Puente is of local origin, derived from the name of the place where a man once lived or held land. The surname Puente is the plural form of the word "Puente" which in Spanish means "bridge," thus, the original bearer of this surname must have been born or lived in a town where there were several bridges, a feature that he decided to adopt as his surname.

Puente Early Origins



The surname Puente was first found in the valley of the Trucios in the province of Biscay in the Basque region. However, families with the Puente surname, have been present in Catalonia for many centuries. The Spanish Puente surname has appeared in documents that date as far back as the eleventh century.
