Ortiz Family History

Ortiz Genealogy & Family Tree

Ortiz is a Spanish name from Asturias, Spain, from as early as the 8th Century. It comes from the Latin given name Fortunio, which means “fortunate” or “blessed.” Cities throughout the world (including in Venezuela, Mexico, and the United States) have been named the same. It is the 94th most common surname in the United States.

Other spellings include “Ortize,” “Ortis,” “Ortez,” “Ortes,” “Ortaz,” “Hortiz,” “Fortiz,” “Fortes,” “Hortonez,” “Ordonez,” and “Ordonez.” Notable people with the surname include Mexican-American actress Ana Alicia Ortiz (Falcon Crest), American state senator Deborah Ortiz, Argentinian President Roberto Maria Ortiz, and Mexican professional wrestler Manuel Ortiz (better known as “Halloween”). The first Ortiz to come to the Americas was Francisco Ortiz de Vergara in Paraguay in 1542.
