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. The original bearer of the name Quinones, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Quinones family originally lived on a piece of land that was shared between a group of co-tenants for sowing having derived from the Spanish word quinon, and ultimately from the Latin word quinio, which mean a group of five.
