JIMENEZ Family HistoryRecorded in several spellings including Gimeno, Jimeno, Jimenez, Gimenez, and Ximenez, the latter being the original form, this is Spanish surname but almost certainly of Romano-Greek and Hebrew origins. Its similarity with the ancient pre-Christian names Siminius and Simos, which combined together to produce the 'modern' Simon, is too close for coincidence. In addition for many centuries upto the year 410 a.d. the Spanish peninsula was an occupied area of the Roman Empire, and many Spanish and Portuguese given names and surnames originate from this period.
