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."

Revila Early Origins



The surname Revila was first found in the Castilian provinces of Huesca, Aragon and Santander.
