The Portuguese surname Viveros 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.

Viveros Early Origins
