Molina Family History

Meaning of surname: Molina

Molina is a Spanish surname. It originated from medieval Spain, in the Christian Kingdom of Castile, when Manrique Pérez de Lara, of the House of Lara, in April 1154 issued a fuero to the town of Molina, nowadays called Molina de Aragón.[1] Thus, the Molina surname is not an occupational surname related with molino ('mill'). It belongs to another Spanish surname, Molinero (literally: 'miller'), to have been originated in the work and management of a mill. Nevertheless, Spanish municipalities like Molina de Segura (Murcia) or Molina de Aragón (Castilla-La Mancha) still nowadays include millstones or mill blades in their respective coats of arms (cf. coat of arms of Molina de Segura and Coats of arms of Molina de Aragón).
