The noble Spanish surname Rueda is toponymic in origin, based on the name of the place where the initial bearer once resided or held land. The surname Rueda is taken directly from the Spanish word "rueda," derived from the Latin "rota," meaning literally "arched wood that forms a bow." The word in Catalan is "roda," also meaning "wheel."

Rueda Early Origins



The surname Rueda was first found in the mountains of Burgos, in the northern regions of the Iberian peninsula. Early records of the name Rueda show that Francisco de Perellos, Carmalengo del Rey, was granted the noble title of Viscount of Rueda by Pedro IV de Aragon in 1366.
