Ruiz Genealogy & History

Ruiz is a Spanish and Portuguese patronymic surname meaning son of Rui or Ruy. Most likely, it comes from the Old German personal name Hrodric, a compound of hrod, meaning renown, and ric, which means power. Many Spanish names are ultimately Germanic in origin, after the Visigoth conquest of Iberia preceded by the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Ruiz family history entered the New World in 1803, when Mateo Ruiz sailed to Puerto Rico. Ruiz genealogy boasts many illustrious individuals, like 1950s Mexican President Adolfo Ruiz Cortines, famed painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso, and AMD CEO Hector Ruiz.
