What Ramirez Means

The word Ramirez means "of Ramiro." Or "es de Ramiro"

We have to remember that last names didn't exist as we have them and children would take their fathers first name.

Just as Ramiro's son had his grandfathers first name and fathers first name together. Sancho Ramirez

Here's the known start of the Last name.

The word Ramiro is a Visigoth word, perhaps meaning from the Reimers river (in Germany?)
