Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


The noble Spanish surname Xavier is local in origin, as it is derived from the name of the place where the original bearer once lived or owned land. Thus, this surname would simply have identified the original bearer as one who hailed from this place. In ancient times, before the advent of a formal system of hereditary family surnames, it was common practice to name a person according to his place of origin.

Xavier Early Origins



The surname Xavier was first found in the northern region of Navarre.
