The distinguished surname Roma is of Spanish origin, and is derived from the forename of the father of the original bearer. In this case, the name is derived from the Latin first name "Romanus," which became "Roman" in Spanish. Thus, the surname Roma would simply have identified the original bearer as a "son of Roman."
