LOPES Family History

This interesting surname, one of the most popular in the Spanish peninsula and South America, is almost certainly of Roman (Latin) origins. It derives from the ancient words "lupus" and the 5th century a.d. "lobo", meaning the wolf. This suggests that either the name is a nickname or more likely it is a tribal and originally a form of endearment. The popularity of the surname is such that it must have been given to a large number of people, so large that in general it has to relate to a tribe or clan.
