Armenta Family Crest



Armenta Family CrestThe Spanish surname Armenta is derived from the Latin term  armenta meaning “herd,” applied to cattle and horses and, by extension, to places and persons involved with them, hence either an occupational name for a herdsman or a topographic name for someone who lived at a place where cattle or horses were raised. The name is first recorded in Spain in the 15th Century. A notable bearer of the name was Francisco de Aarmenta the Spanish Franciscan missionary who journeyed to Brazil and Paraguay between 1538 and 1546. Santo Domingo Armenta is a town and municipality in Oaxaca in south-western Mexico which was named after the original European settlers that arrived in the 16th and 17th Centuries
