Salazar name origin

Many genealogical researchers wonder about surname origins.I propose this idea. Many last names have A Latin origin since Spain was a province of the Roman Empire, there is no doubt about this. Divide Salazar to Sala and Zar. Sala is also an Italian surname derived from the ancient name of Sulla like the Roman general & dictator,Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Zar derives from Caesar like in Zaragosa which is CaesarAugustus, a city in Spain. Thus Zar derives from the famous Gaius Julius Caesar, another Roman general & dictator which provides a Latin/Hispanic pride to have this name. The best in your research. Manuel R. Salazar
