In Reply to: Re: Aldrete question by Alberto Aldrete of 27

The Alderetes did come from an area heavily saturated with Vascos but several Spanish genealogy sites say the name came from Asturias. Supposedly it is a Visigothic name derived from Alderedo. There were several Arian christian archbishops in Sapnish history with the surname Aldertus that precede the Islamic invasion of Spain. I list this because some people believe that anything that begins with "al" in the Spanish peninsula is derived from the Arabic.
