    I would love to know if in reality surname Almodovar is a derivative of
    Surname Medawar? I am very proud of my name. I wish I could do my genealogy. I have read everything and anything available related to surname and history. I am aware of the modification made by the crown of Spain but that does not halt me. My next trip to Spain will be with my brother to visit the Castle. Thank you. Margaret Almodovar

  4. Arabic المدور and Spanish al-mo-do-va-r are pretty close:
    ال = Al (article the)
    م = mo
    د = do
    و = va (corrupted w, common to languages rooted in Proto-Indo-European)
    ر = r

    See http://genealogy.familyeducation.com/surname-origin/almodovar
    Spanish (Almodóvar) and Portuguese (Almodôvar): habitational name from places called Almodóvar, in the provinces of Ciudad Real and Córdoba and near Cuenca, Spain, or from Almodôvar, Portugal. These are named with Arabic al-mudawwar ‘the round’, ‘the circular’, referring to a hill, fort, or other topographic feature.
