The noble Spanish surname Revila is of toponymic origin, as it derives its origin from a particular place-name near which the original bearer lived or held land. Revila is derived from the place-name Revilla, which is in turn a compound of the words "rey" meaning "king " and "villa" meaning "borough," literally "villa del rey" translated as "borough of the King."
