Where did the Spanish Velasquez family come from? What is the Spanish Velasquez family crest and coat of arms? When did the Velasquez family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Velasquez family history?

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 Velasquez 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.
