Noble surnames, such as Sandow, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Sandow, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Sandow family originally lived in the place named Sandoval in the province of Burgos. This place-name was originally Sannoval, which was originally derived from the Latin word "saltus," which means "grove" or "wood," and "novalis," which refers to newly cleared land.
