Hernandez Genealogy & History

Hernandez is a distinguished Portuguese and Spanish name first found in the medieval kingdom of Castile in the fourth-century Visigoth era. Derived from Spanish "faro", meaning journey, and "nano", meaning brave, it is synonymous with the Old German "Ferdinand", meaning bold voyager. Hernandez and its variation Fernandez were popularized by King Ferdinand III of Castile and Leon (1198-1252), who successfully led the Spanish Christians against the Moors and was subsequently canonized. The many spelling variations complicate Hernandez genealogy: Farrant, Fernandez, Fernando, Fernao, Hernaiz, Hernan, and Hernando. Hernandez family history in the New World started with Baltazar Fernandes in Brazil in 1654.
