Origin of the Name Morales

The origin of the name Morales was found in the archives. The name Morales is usually of Spanish origin is of locational origin, describing a person or family who resided near a mulberry or blackberry bush. The root of the name is the Spanish word 'mora' which itself is from the Latin 'morum', meaning 'mulberry'. An early bearer of the name was Francisco de Morales who was recorded as having been a witness at a Christening at Nuestra Senora La Antigue, Valladolid in Italy in the year 1570. Cristobal de Morales was a sixteenth century composer during the Renaissance and was the first Spanish composer of international renown. Luis de Morales (1512-1586) was a renowned Spanish painter born in Badajoz, Extremadura and was known as 'El Divino'. The coat of arms or family crest shown here is an ancient and distinctive design the origin of which dates back over a millennium. Initially these armorial bearings were first used by feudal lords and warriors on the field of battle as a means of identification but later became extant among the general population. While some coats of arms refer to individuals others refer to groups of people who bear the same name. From Spain the name spread to the rest of Europe and from there to America, Canada, Australia and the new world beyond.
The Morales coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Morales descendants.
