ORIGIN AND HISTORY

Remedios comes from the Spanish word for "remedy," Remedio.[1] Remedio is the male version of the name, while Remedios is the female form.[1] Remedios refers to a medicine, something that will cure ills,[1] and refers specifically to remedy provided by divine sources.[1] Remedios can be further broken down into the Latin root reme, meaning "to return"[1], and the Spanish word Dios, which means "God."[1] So, to remedy someone is to help them return to God.

Usage of this name is often in reference to Santa Maria de los Remedios, one of the names for the Virgin Mary in Catholic tradition.[1]

Remedios may also be a surname. It was probably transferred from a first name to a surname.[1]
