Medina Family HistoryRecorded in history as de Medina, and Medina, this is a surname of the Iberian Peninsula, specifically Catalonia in Spain. It is locational from any or all of the places called Medina, such as Medina del Campo in the province of Valladolid, whilst the duke of Medina Sidonia commanded the famous Armada, which so disastrously failed to invade England in 1588. The name is believed to mean the Holy Place from the Arabic Mdina. Much of Spain was under Moorish Muslim control for many centuries, until they were finally driven out in the 15th century.
