From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Reina family. The Reina 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.

Reina Early Origins



The surname Reina was first found in Castile, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
