Villafranca Name Meaning
Spanish: habitational name from one of various places called Villafranca, from Late Latin villa ‘(outlying) farmstead’, ‘(dependent) settlement’ + franca ‘free’ (see Frank 2). The settlements were so named because they were exempt from certain feudal taxes or obligations, normally as a reward for some special service.
