Amaral Family History

Amaral Name Meaning
Portuguese: habitational name from any of the numerous minor places called Amaral. The place name is of uncertain etymology, probably from the term amaral, denoting a kind of black grape (from Latin amarus ‘bitter’). Alternatively, the origin may be a collective noun derived from Spanish maro, amaro ‘cat-thyme’ (Latin marum, influenced by Spanish amargo ‘bitter’).
