GHIRON, GHIRONE

Surnames derive from one of many different origins. Sometimes there may be more than one explanation for the same name. This family name is a toponymic (derived from a geographic name of a town, city, region or country). Surnames that are based on place names do not always testify to direct origin from that place, but may indicate an indirect relation between the name-bearer or his ancestors and the place, such as birth place, temporary residence, trade, or family-relatives.

Ghiron and Ghirone are two of the Jewish family names based on the city of Gerona in Catalonia, northern Spain. Other variants are Ghirondi, Gerundi and Yerondi. Gerondi and Gerundi are documented as Jewish family names in 12th/13th century Spain. The Ramban, or Nahmanides, (1194-1270) was also known as Rav Moses Gerondi and Yerondi.

Distinguished bearers of the Jewish family name Ghiron include the Italian Rabbi Johanan Ghiron (1646-1716) and the director of the Braidense Library in Milano, Italy, Isaia Ghiron (1837-1888).
