The noble Spanish surname Revilla is of toponymic origin, as it derives its origin from a particular place-name near which the original bearer lived or held land. Revilla 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."

Revilla Early Origins



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