Leon Genealogy & History

Leon has two possible derivations: a Spanish locational name describing someone from Leon (a Roman garrison in northwest Spain pre-Middle Ages, thus an abbreviation of the surname de Leon) or a French/Spanish nickname derived from Spanish leon (lion) or a diminutive of Leonard (bold as a lion). The coat of arms bears a gold lion, signifying courage. The Leon surname is first found in owners of a feudal estate in Gascogne, France, with spelling variations in Leon genealogy of Lenard, Leonardy, Leone, Lienard, Lionart, Lionhart, Lion, and Lon, as well as diminutives like Leonetti. Leon family history in America begins in 1537 when Cristobal Leon arrived in Peru.
