Meaning & History

Possibly a form of Aginald. It coincides with a Spanish vocabulary word which refers to the thirteenth salary or end-of-year bonus in Latin America, as well as a folk genre of Christmas carols (also called villancicos); the earlier form was aguilando, allegedly from the Latin phrase hoc in anno meaning "during this year". Since 2014 this name has been banned in the Mexican state of Sonora. A famous bearer of the surname was Emilio Aguinaldo (1869-1964), the first president of the Philippines and a controversial figure in Filipino history.
