There is a branch of the Lalama family in a small city in central Ecuador (South America). This is were my great grandfather comes from, and it is as far as I can trace it. I am wondering if somebody could shed some light on the subject.

Marco, mi abuelo fue Carlos Augusto Lalama Bayas, quien siempre vivio en Ambato. Actualmente vivo en Boynton Beach, Florida, pero tengo entendido que en la biblioteca del Colegio Bolivar de Ambato hay un librito que refiere la llegada de 2 hermanos Lalama a Ambato a comienzos del siglo XIX, o algo parecido, uno de los cuales fue un benefactor del citado colegio y de los necesitados en general. No se mas, pero si averiguas algo, dejamelo saber.

You are right. There is a Lalama family in Ambato, Ecuador.
My grandfather Victor Hugo Lalama is not alive anymore but there are still some relatives remaining with Lalama as their last name. My uncle lives in California and he continues the family name. I still wonder where the name originally comes from.

I found there are two posibilities:
1.- from a little town in Italy, there are many Lalamas in this town.
2.- Spain because there are many there two, they were part of the royalty back then.

What I can not found yet is if they came from Italy to Spain or from Spain they imigrate to Italy.
I still working on it.

I heard it was Spain, for what it's worth. I was married to Jorge Gonzalo Lalama ( he's a first cousin of Linda Lopez's mother actually) and spent a little time in Ambato quite a few years ago. I asked my in-laws about the Lalama family origins back then but unfortunately didn't save any notes.
