Lopez, a real latin name from Spain

I just want to explain the origins of the name López, my name.

López is a common surname  in the spanish language.  Lopez, the  meaning is Son of Lope and Lope itself is  a Spanish given name  deriving from Latin lupus, meaning wolf. The surname is first attested in the heart of Spain, where the name is  from Latin.

Actually wolf in spanish today is lobo, quite similar.

And here comes a bit of history of  Spain´s origins:

Early settlements

The history of human presence in the Iberian Peninsula dates back about 800,000 years after the discovery of Homo antecessor at the site of Atapuerca (Burgos). The most striking evidence of the Palaeolithic is represented by the paintings of the Altamira Cave and the broad spectrum of rock art of the Mediterranean.

Iberians, Celts and Romans

From the first millennium BC, the Iberian peninsula was occupied and colonized by different Celts, Iberians, the Tarshish, Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians, until the arrival of the Romans, whose presence would leave a valuable legacy assets, of which the city of Tarraco is the best example. After the fall of the Roman Empire raids happen Swabians, Vandals and Alans, until the arrival of the Visigoths, who manage to build a strong Hispanic monarchy with its capital in Toledo.
