Hi,I'm Felix Arias Jr from Philippines. It's cool to know that Arias surname is originated in Spain or in Germany..
Carlos Andres Arias
Hola. Soy de Colombia. Mi Papa se llamaba Cornelio Arias, fallecio hace 5 años. Bueno a lo que vinimos. La historia de la familia Arias por mi parte de sangre. Mi abuelo se llamaba Antonio Arias vivio en la region del Valle del Cauca la mayor parte de su vida, me contaron que en su niñes vivio en la parte de Antioquia anteriormente llamada Viejo Caldas con mi bisabuelo (su nombre no lo tengo presente en el momento), y se dice que mi bisabulo fue uno de los colonizadores de esa region colombiana y que venia de España. Hace bastante tiempo hablando con mi hermana al respecto, ella me conto que segun lo que ella averiguo quizas el nombre Arias venga del Aria o Ariah Arabe de una descendencia muy antigua. y segun parece por lo que he leido, parese ser que es una sangre bastante mezclada.
Puerto Rican Arias from New York here. They say it was a Jewish name before they were converted to Catholicism. My aunt did a DNA test that indicates many of us came from Northern Morocco as Moors. Small world.
this is all very cool. i would love to find out how the Arias family came to Chile. I've been looking for years and still can't find my family's branch... we live in canada now...all i know is that my granfather was disowned...if there are any chilean arias out there who know anything i'd love to hear about it

Well guys, I think the Arias arrived in Dominican Republic first, geographically speaking!! I am from D.R and l live in Quebec now. My grand father is an Arias, he is about 90 years old. I will ask him some questions about his ancestors and I`ll keep you posted. Hasta luego queridos primos!!
My father is also domincan with the last name arias I believe that they were from boca chica. But my grand mother told me they lived in another place prior to their moving. But now I currently live in New Jersey.

Hi there! it's good to know these information on the Arias family name. I was really trying to trace the origin. I was in Seville, Spain in 2009 and saw a brand of butter with the name Arias so I thought that there must be people there with the same family name.
where are you from?
My husband is Arias, from Seville. Born and bred there, and only moved away to England 2 years ago (I am English and followed the tradition of taking his surname - though only his first surname!) Interestingly, my maiden name was Till, also originally a German farming term meaning to till the land. We were amazed when we realised the two names were quite possibly the same!
Hello! The name Arias is my fourth last name when written in the traditional paternal spanish custom (My mother's mother's last name). My grandmother who is over 80 years old has personally told me that our version of the name is in fact Galician, Spanish like someone else suggested (so we might be related lol). Her grandmother was spanish, but she also told me that her family is of French descent!
Is the last name Areas (or Aréas/Arêas) a Galician and Portuguese variation of the Spanish Arias? Or is it different? In Spanish the name Arias has a stress on the first syllable, A. But my own last name Areas has a stress on the second syllable, "re." Thanks for the info on the possible orginisof Arias...whether Latinized Germanic or Sephardic. I would not know. My own last name is not Arias but Areas, the "e" being the stressed vowel, the syllable "re" is where the stress is placed and according to Spanish grammar it does not need an accent mark because the next-to-last syllables stressed typically do not need it. I'm a native Spanish-speaker from a Spanish-speaking country, but my father told me our name Areas is of Galician origin (gallego, in the northwest Galicia province of Spain north of Portugal).
The Catholic church did a great job of forcing conversion onto most of the Arias genealogy history. As you will find, most of the Arias family history has christian backgrounds.
