Howdy fellow Griegos! I'm Joanne from Albuquerque, NM.

I was recently looking for origins of the last name Griego and the places that I went to on the internet both said the last name Griego comes from Italy. It was originated in Italy, I was under the impression that it came from Spain? Can anyone shed some light on this????

Thanks

Had 'heard' years ago as a child that a book was written on the immigration of those that acquired the Griego name. The name originating here (US), several generations ago of Greek decent people. Greek names being very difficult to spell and pronounce, thus, at least some of the Greek population were called "Los Griegos", obviously settling in what is now the state of NM. If this book of geneology of the Griego name exists, I would like to obtain one. Does this account sound familiar to anyone?

I read this same account in a book called "New Mexico Family Names" that I pulled from the Denver Public Library. Also, online, I came across an island in South America called JuanGriego; its history also talks about someone from Greece.
