How Popular Is The Name Ignacio

Family name origins & meanings

  • Spanish : from a Latinized form of the personal name Íñigo, which is of pre-Roman origin (recorded in classical times as Enneco). As a personal name it was not common in the Middle Ages; its comparative popularity in Catholic countries today is due to the fame of St. Ignatius of Loyola (Iñigo Yáñez de Oñaz y Loyola, 1491–1556), founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
