Definition of Hidalgo
By: Chris Czach Hidalgo


The meaning of HIDALGO:

(NOT  Hildago, Hilgado or Hilagdo-- note the spelling)

Other ways of spelling the surname HIDALGO include: Hedalgo, Hidalgoe, Hidalgow (all of Spanish descent). Fidalgo is the same family name descending from Portugal.

The first evidence of the surname HIDALGO was found in Asturias, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.

Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Early migrants to the New World included Bartolome Hidalgo who arrived in Puerto Rico in 1534 and Juan Hidalgo who settled in Peru between 1578-1580 with his wife and son.

1.  Originally a surname in Spain - translated meaning "Hijo de algo," ("son of something").

2.  noun; A title for a Spanish nobleman of secondary royalty.

3. Nobel one.

Hidalgo is a term designating the lowest degree of Spanish nobility, a rank above the ordinary gentry but below the great lords. The status was granted either directly from the crown (hidalgo de carta) or was inherited through birth (hidalgo de sangre). The term was known as early as the 12th century.

The prolonged warfare to re-conquer Spain from the Moors especially necessitated the continuous expansion of this knightly class. Although it did not have any political importance, the rank gave its members privileges such as use of the title Don and considerable exemption from taxation.

The "hidalgo" is a familiar character in Spanish literature, often being portrayed as a vagabond knight.

Hidalgo is commonly used in Mexico to name mountains, lakes, rivers, streets, cities, counties and a state. The name is also used for counties, cities and streets in the U.S. including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oregon, Colorado, Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Illinois.

Miguel Hidalgo (a Catholic Priest) is considered the liberating founding father of Mexico - guaranteeing the freedom of all Mexicans from Spanish rule.  His name, to the people of Mexico, is the equivalent of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln to the people of the United States of America.

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between Mexico and the United States reserves the rights of Mexican immigrants to a fair assimilation into the U.S.  For more information, click here.

In 1920 the asteroid 944 Hidalgo was discovered, whose orbit stretches between the orbits of Mars and Saturn. Hidalgo travels further from the sun (a = 5.8 AU) than any other asteroid. It moves in a plane inclined to the plane of the ecliptic at an angle of 42.5°. The aphelion of Hidalgo is approximately equal to the mean distance of Saturn to the sun.

Fide Et Animus

The Latin phrase "Fide Et Animus," that usually accompanies the Hidalgo coat of arms, translated into English means "Faithful and Courageous."

The eight pointed star (also known as the  octagram), part of the Hidalgo coat of arms, can symbolize many things:

2. The eight pointed star is the expression of the law of "Cause and Effect:"

  • "As you sow, so shall you reap."

  • "What goes around, comes around"

  • "Karma,"

3. The eight pointed star represents "The Harvest."  It allows one to reap the seeds they have sown in the past, gain from their hard work on projects and benefit from learning.

4. Eight is the number of fate, destiny and justice.

5. The eight pointed star is deducted from two squares superimposed and 45 degrees off of each other.
