The surname Taboada was traced to Galicia, in the Province of Lugo, to the municipality of Taboada, where the name was originated. With time, the surname spread through other areas of the Spanish speaking world, in Spain and in the American continent. The term “taboada” comes from “tabla”, from the latin “tabula” that means “plank, a flat piece of wood, longer than wider and not too thick.” It is significant the fact that the region is known for its many sawmills and that the wood industry dates to very remote times. Another meaning given by specialists is that of “taboa” (“tabla”; lat. “tabula”), equivalent to the Spanish “tablada”, meaning “each of the spaces in which an orchard is divided for irrigation.” From the house of Taboada branched houses like the Bergaza (Lugo) from which sprung the notorious General Tabuada, victorious over the French at the battle of Cogarderas (Asturga), during the war for independence.
