LEON Family HistorySometimes confused with the surname 'Leonard', this surname is in fact quite different. It is Spanish but could be said to be of Roman origins, in that it derives from the city of Leon in North West Spain, named after a 'legion'. In the times of the Roman occupation of Spain upto the year 410 a.d., this place was the headquarters of the 7th Legio Gemina, the modern spelling being simply a short form of these elements. In some cases the surname may derive from the French city of Lyon, also occupied by the Roman army, and whilst this is quite possible, it is not a proven source of the surname.
