MORENO Family History

The origins of this interesting and early surname are buried in romantic mystery. It is believed that the name derives from the Latin 'marinas' meaning dark haired or more likely of dark appearance, and it is probable that the word was applied as a less than friendly nickname to the Moorish Invaders of Spain who conquered the country in the t century. Whether this is true or not the surname has always been popular both in Spain and Portugal, and later in the new colonies of Mexico, Brazil and other South American countries.
