Esparza Family HistoryRecorded in many spellings including Espada, Espadero (Spanish), Espasa (Catalan) Espee, (France) Spada (Italian), and the Rumanian and later Russian, Spatarul. This is an occupational surname for a professional soldier or more specifically a swordsman. The word was originally applied as well to one who instructed in the noble arts of fencing and duelling. The name derives originally from the Ancient Greek 'spatha' through the later Roman (Latin) 'spathe', words which described a two edged sword, perhaps without a point.
