The Spanish surname Ruvalcaba is of local origin, being derived from the name of the place of residence of the initial bearer. In this instance, the surname would appear to be derived from a pseudo translation of the Arabic term "Rub al Khali" which means literally "the empty quarter." There is little doubt that this place-name was first introduced into Spain during the Moorish conquest when Tarik the Moorish leader crossed into Gibraltar in the year 711.
