Name Meaning

Spanish:1. religious byname, from the title María de las Nieves ‘Mary of the Snows’, given particularly to children born on 5 August, on which date the Virgin allegedly once caused it to snow in Rome. It is possible that the surname derives in part from a nickname for someone with snow-white hair. 2. Castilianized form of the Galician and Asturian-Leonese habitational name Neves .
