The noble surname Varo is of Spanish descent, and has toponymic origins. Therefore the surname is derived from the name of the place of residence of the initial bearer of the name. The Castilian word "baro" is, in fact, of Greek origin and means "heaviness, gravity."

Varo Early Origins



The surname Varo was first found in the province of Burgos, an area of the kingdom of Castile, one of the most influential Christian kingdoms of the Middle Ages.
