The noble Spanish surname Samaniago is of local origin, derived from the name of the place where a man once lived or where he once owned land. In Medieval Spain, many families adopted the name of the estate or town where they lived as a means of identification. These names then became hereditary, and many modern surnames can be traced back to a small village or town.

Samaniago Early Origins



The surname Samaniago was first found in the province of Alava in the northern Basque country. The family originated in the town of Samaniego, situated between the two cities of Vitorio and Logrono in northern Spain.
