The Portuguese surname Viveiros is of local origin, derived from a place name where the original bearer resided or held land. In this instance, the surname derives from Viveros, a town located in the province of Albacete, Spain. The origin of the place name derives from the Castilian term "vivero," meaning "nursery" or "fish farm," from the Latin "vivaria," thus perhaps indicating that the town was established near such a feature.

Viveiros Early Origins



The surname Viveiros was first found in near the Village of Albacete in Spain. However, once the region of Portugal became an independent kingdom, the Viveiros surname became an important Portuguese family name.
