From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Solares family. The original bearer of the name Solares, 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 Solares family originally lived in any of the numerous village and towns named Soler. 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."
