The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Valdespino. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is ez. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. Some names are derived from the saints of the Christian Church, but many Spanish surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. The Visigoths, who ruled Spain between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries had a profound impact on the development of surnames.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Valdés, Valdes, Valdez and others.

First found in Asturias, birthplace of the Christian Reconquest of Spain.
