It was a nickname which was  applied to a keeper of animals, who used a stick to keep his charges together, or to an official who carried a rod as a symbol  of his office. The name was  derived from the Spanish word VARA (rod, forked stick) and  rendered in ancient documents in the Latin form VARUS. It is also  a Spanish topographic name for someone who lived by a river bank,  or a habitation name from a place named with this word. Other  spellings of the name include  VARAH, VARAS, VARELA, VERO and  VERAS. In the 8th century, Spain fell under the control  of the Moors,  and  this influence, which lasted into the 12th century, has also  left its mark on Hispanic surnames. A few names are  based directly on Arabic personal names. The majority of Spanish occupational and  nickname surnames, however, are  based on ordinary  Spanish derivatives. In Spain identifying patronymics are  to be found as early as the mid-9th  century, but these changed with each generation, and  hereditary surnames seem to have come in slightly later in Spain than  in England and  France. As well as the names of the traditional  major saints of the Christian Church, many  of the most  common Spanish surnames are  derived from personal names of Germanic origin. For the most  part these names are  characteristically Hispanic. They derive  from the language of the Visigoths, who controlled Spain between the mid-5th  and  early 8th centuries. Edward Chad VARAH, born in 1911,  is the Anglican  clergyman, born in Barton-on-Humberside. He studied at Oxford and  Lincoln Theological College, and  was  ordained in 1936.  He worked  in various parishes before becoming rector  at St. Stephen Walbrook  in the City of London  in 1953. Over the centuries, most  people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God.  However much  the individual may have liked or disliked  the surname, they were  stuck  with it, and  people rarely changed them  by personal choice. A more common form of variation  was  in fact involuntary, when  an official change was  made, in other words,  a clerical error.
