Hey Folks! This last name is such a mystery but my father is Nelson David from the Philippines. Now, I know the Filipino people have bloodlines coming from Spain because of the discovery and settlements in history by the Spaniards but when doing research about the last name David some websites directed it to Portugal decent. All I know is that my grandmother's maiden name was Sobrevenias and my grandfather was Cruz-David so that def. sounds Spanish to me. But, I have totally met White people here in Texas with David lastnames and it blew my mind. Anyway, I love my people and my last name even though all my life (34yrs) people always ask "that's your last name?" I just look and say well it isn't my first name lol! My people look Asian-Pacific Islander- Spanish!
I converted in Judaism and changed my last name to David.
My last name is David and my ancestors are from the Czech Republic (specifically Bohemia), where apparently there were quite a few Davids in southern Bohemia. Because my grandfather was off the boat and his name was David and his father before him was also David (spelled exactly the same as I spell it) - we always figured if we searched enough, we are probably Jewish although we weren't raised Jewish. In the NYC area the surname David, is normally considered a Jewish name.
im Steven David from texas ive also wondered about my last name only met my dad twice but he was from louisiana his name was Jerry David
I always wondered where surname David originated since people always ask if that was my last name. My father was from Tarlac,Philippines.
My name is Marcus David, I do not know how my family acquired this last name as I am of Torres Strait Islander descent which is located in between Australia and Papua New Guinea & I derive from fierce, sea fairing warriors. As I stated, I do not know how or who gave this last name to my ancestors..
My family immigrated to the U.S in 1895 to live in Baltimore, from a small town called Richardson near Wales. I don't know the name of my family member who immigrated to Ellis Island, but I do know they were factory workers under poor living conditions.
