From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Sol family. The original bearer of the name Sol, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain.

This place-name is derived from the word "soler," which means "site" or "plot" and it is ultimately derived from the Late Latin word "solarium," which means "bottom" or "ground."
