The Riera surname finds its roots in the Catalan language, from the word "riera," which means "stream." As such, this is a topographic surname created from a geographic feature near where the bearer of the name lived. There are several places in Spain so-named, and it is also entirely possible that some of the family lines which bear this name, originally adopted it from a place name.
