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. Similar to many Spanish patronymic names, the distinguished surname Vicencio is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The surname Vicencio is derived from the given name Vicente, which is in turn derived from the Latin personal name Vincent, which means conquering.
