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

Vicente Early Origins



The surname Vicente was first found in Castile, the medieval Spanish kingdom whose language and culture were to spread to many countries around the world.
