The Portuguese surname Rebelo is of local origin, deriving from a place name where the first bearer of the name lived or held land. In this instance, the surname is derived from the name of the ancestral seat of the Rebelo family, which the members adopted as their family name. Therefore, the surname Rebelo signifies "one from the house of Rebelo."

Rebelo Early Origins



The surname Rebelo was first found in Santa Justa de Lisboa, where the family held their ancestral seat. The progenitor of the Rebelo house was Don Paio Delgado, a knight who took part in the conquest of Lisbon in 1147, during the reign of King Alfonso Henrique. Rui Rebelo Vasques, seems to have been the first who took the surname, being master of the house and couto Rebelo.
