The noble Spanish surname Ronquillo is of nickname origin, that is, it is derived from a physical characteristic or personal attribute of the original bearer. The surname Ronquillo, is derived from a regional diminutive of the Spanish word "ronco" (1220-50), derived from the Latin "raucus" meaning "hoarse (voice)," which was modified by the influence of the Spanish verb "roncar" meaning "to snore." Thus, the surname Ronquillo, originated to identify a person whose voice was rather gruff or raspy.
