Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Rafols family. The Rafols surname is derived from the Latin "regis, " meaning "royal." The Spanish word "rey" means "king," while "reina" means "queen." Bearing this name does not necessarily imply royal ancestry however; as, when surnames first began to be used in Medieval Spain, nicknames were often taken on as surnames.
