Chavez Genealogy & History

Chavez genealogy typically traces its way back to Spain or Portugal. The name is an American Spanish spelling of the name Chaves. This is a modern Portuguese or Old Spanish word that means "keys," although as a name it probably ultimately derives from the Hebrew given name "Jacob," which means "God protects." It is related to the given names Jaime and James, which both derive from Jacob. Alternate spellings in written records have included Chavey and Chauvey. There is also a Portuguese place called Chaves, which confuses the origins of Chavez family history, but the surname is probably not related to this place name.
