The original bearer of the name Riba, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Riba family originally lived near a river bank or seaside. The surname Riba is derived from the word riparia, which is further derived form the Latin word ripa, which mean river bank or seaside.
