Ortega Genealogy & History

Ortega is a Spanish and Portuguese surname, largely locational from several villages in north-central Spain. It may ultimately descend from the Latin urtica, meaning nettles, which were harvested for their medicinal value; however, hortus is Latin for an orchard or garden, which would make about as much sense given the agricultural fecundity of northern Spain. Ortega family history begins with Phelpa de Ortega, who was christened at Santa Maria Magdalena in Vallodolid in early 1570. Ortega genealogy boasts several well-known people, such as Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, producer and director Kenneth Ortega, and Yucatan Governor Ivonne Ortega.
