ASK A QUESTION what does the name ocampo mean
My friend's last name is ocampo. What does it mean?
I dont know much about that area of spain...but campo usually refers to "the fields" or an agricultural region...might be an area that is historically agricultural???
Ocampo is a Mexican-Irish name for someone who comes from the country. The apostrophe was lost along the way. Similar to Obama.
During the Mexican War of Independence from Spain, some of the many Irish mercenaries who fought for Spain stayed in Mexico. For this reason it is not uncommon to find Irish names in parts of Mexico, especially the Bajio, "the cradle of independence."
Bet you never knew that!
(The second paragraph is actually true.)
