Rial Family Genealogy Forum
Dear Esteban Rial,
I dont know if you speak Spanish or not, so I will try to write you in English. We have the same last name. They call me "Billy" for short. But our name "RIAL" is a patronimical name from Spain. It is originated since the very old times in the Celtic villages in the border or coasts of the "Rķas" (special types of rivers). In that beautiful green zone of the old kingdom of Pontevedra, there are many of these rivers or "Rias" and that makes a "Rial". Like the "Rķa de Vigo" or the "Rķa de Arosa" which are called "Rķas Baixas" where we are originally from. It sure was nice writting to you. Take care. Bye.
