The Spanish surname Narváez  is of habitational origin. The original bearer of the name was a person who came from the town of Narváez which is close to Almagro, in Ciudad Real province. Today the name is primarily found in the Basque region of north west Spain. A notable bearer of the name Narváez was  José María Narváez (1768 – August 4, 1840) a Spanish naval officer, explorer, and navigator notable for his work in the Pacific Northwest of present-day Canada. In 1791, as commander of the schooner Santa Saturnina, he led the first European exploration of the Strait of Georgia, including a landing on present-day British Columbia's Sunshine Coast.
