The Vgildo surname comes from the word "vigil, " which is from the Latin "vigilia," meaning "wakefulness." As a surname, Vgildo may have originally been a nickname for someone wakeful or watchful, or it may have come from the town of Vigil, in Asturias, Spain.

Vgildo Early Origins



The surname Vgildo was first found in Asturias, on the Bay of Biscay, northwestern Spain. Asturias became part of the kingdom of León on the accession of King Alfonso III in 866, and was made a principality in 1388.
