VARGAS Family History
Recorded as Varga and Vargas, these are two similar surnames from quite different origins and nationality. Varga is usually Hungarian, and when of that origin is occupational for a shoemaker or cobbler. Not surprisingly occupational surnames were amongst the first to be created, however they did not usually become hereditary unless a son followed a father into the same line of business. Many did not, and when that happened, the son might be called both by his occupation, and just to make sure, that of his fathers as well! Vargas in the plural, is usually Spanish and Portugese.
