Name Meaning

Spanish (Fernández): patronymic from the personal name Fernando . The surname (and to a lesser extent the variant Hernandez ) has also been established in southern Italy, mainly in Naples and Palermo, since the period of Spanish dominance there, and as a result of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century, many of whom moved to Italy.
