Where did the Spanish Sabo family come from? What is the Spanish Sabo family crest and coat of arms? When did the Sabo family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Sabo family history?

The origins the old family name Sabo can be found within medieval Spain. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Spanish names were influenced by the Germanic speaking Visigoths, who conquered Spain from the mid-5th to 8th centuries, and the Arabic and Muslim Moors who conquered the Spanish homeland from the 8th to 12th centuries. Since Spain was periodically dominated by both of these nations in its past, it shared much in common with both the Visigoths and the Muslims in the occupations they described.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Zapata, Zapato, Zapatero, Zapatera, Sabato, Sabata and many more.

First found in Castile, whose language and culture would be carried to many countries of the world.
