SISNEROS Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Cisneros, Zisneros, and Sisneros, this unusual surname is Spanish. It is also locational and originates from a place in the province of Palencia. The derivation may not look like it, but it is from the original Roman (Latin) 'cisne' meaning a swan, 'Cisneros' being originally a place where swans nested, or perhaps where they were deliberately bred for both food and feathers. The Spanish peninsula was occupied by the Romans from the 1st century a.d. through to the collapse of the Empire in the year 410 a.d.
