The spanish surame rubalcava is of local orgin, being devired from the name of the place of residence of the inital bearer. In this case it would be diverd from the pseudo translation of the arabic term "Rub al Khali" which literally means "the empty quarter" There is no doubt that the name was frist introduced in spain during the moorish conquest when tarik and moorish leader crossed teh gibraltar in 711. It was first found in the Castilin province of Santander. thier are also many varints on the surname; rubalcaba ruvalcaba...you get the idea.
