The Vaz Martines Family
c.1687

  • The family crests above are of Spanish origin.
  • In Spain, the earliest forms of hereditary surnames were patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronymic Vaz is such a name, having been derived from the medieval given name Velasco. This name was in turn derived from the Basque word "bela," which means "crow," and the diminutive suffix sko.
  • Spelling variations of this family name include: Belasco, Blas, Blasco, Blásquez, Blasquez, Velázquez, Velazquez, Vásquez, Vasquez, Vázquez, Vazquez, Velasco, Vélez, Velez and Velasquez. First found in Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
