The surname is one of the Spanish patronymic surnames, created from the name of a male ancestor. It seems that this name came from at least two sources, in some instances coming from the personal name Silvaus, derived in turn from the Latin "silva" meaning "wood," and in other instances from the personal name Salvius, from the Latin "salvus" for "saved." Both were names of early Christian Saints.

Salva Early Origins



The surname Salva was first found in Catalonia, the north east region of the former kingdom of Aragon.
