Origin of last name Gal, country of origin: Spain

Nobility: Lords - Noble Family
Heraldic trace of family: Gal
Nobility crown Gal Ancient and noble Spanish family, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. The first traces of the Family are found in 1215, because some of its members were among the knights who took part in the campaign of King Sancho VII. The references about this family become more frequent from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century, especially about the facts of the foundation of Monterrey, being a Gal one of the twenty-five men who D. Francisco de Ibarra, native of Durango and governor of Nueva Vizcaya, sent to Northern New Spain (Mexico). Moreover, the clear nobility of the House is confirmed by the presence of its blazon in the valuable work "Repertorio de blasones de la comunidad hispánica - letras D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-LL Vicente De Cadenas y Vicent Instituto Salazar y Castro". A branch of the family flourished in Chieri, Italy, and its members had the title... To be continued

of consignori of Revello. Another branch of the family moved to Chambery in the XVII century. From the analysis of colours and figures of the coat of arms we can also have some information about the family virtues. The tincture or ("gold") refers to the most noble metal and it is symbol of generosity and elevation of the mind; the poplar tree can be represented on a coat of arms as a single tree or in a cluster of poplars, and it means great strength; the tower is the emblem of grandeur and society, and has been granted sometimes to one who has faithfully held one for his king, or who has captured one by force or strategy. Family names so old, without any doubt honour not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
