Meaning, Origin, Etymology
The Spanish family name Abela is classified as being of habitation origin. Habitation names are those family names which are derived from either the location of the place of residence of the initial bearer or from the name of the town or village from whence he hailed. In some instances, a habitation name refers to a residence which was distinguished by a sign or engraving usually displayed over the door. In this particular instance, the name Abela was taken from the place named Abela, a town in the province of Lugo. The etymology of this name lies in the Galician term “abela” meaning “avelana”, which is the fruit of the “avellano tree”. The family name Abela descended from a Martín Martínez, known as “el abuelo”, in turn a descendant of one Aboacar Ramírez, son of the King Ramiro
