An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


In Spain, the earliest forms of hereditary surnames were patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronymic Vasquez is such a name, having been derived from the medieval given name Velasco. This name was in turn derived from the Basque word "bela," which means "crow," and the diminutive suffix sko.

Vasquez Early Origins



The surname Vasquez was first found in Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
