Rivera Genealogy & History

Rivera is primarily a Spanish surname, though it comes from Sicily. Rivera is Castillian for riverbank, from the Sicilian ribera, which in turn derives from the Latin ripa, also meaning a riverbank or possibly a plateau near a river; there may also have been places named for those sites, making Rivera a locational and topographical surname. Rivera family history reaches the United States with the emigration of Jacob Rodrigues Rivera to New York City in 1746. Rivera genealogy includes many notable people, such as Florida Representative David Rivera, Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera, and journalist Geraldo Rivera.
