Origins Available: Italian, Spanish


From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Romero family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Romero is a nickname type of surname for a Roman or an Italian. The name was originally derived from the Latin word Romaeus and the Greek word Romaios, which mean Roman.

Romero Early Origins



The surname Romero was first found in Aragon, one of the medieval Christian kingdoms of northern Spain.
