The Surname SANDOVAL is a Jewish surname of Sephardi origin. Loosely translated, it means 'newly cleared land' or 'Holy Land'. The name was once common among Jews living in Spain before their expulsion in 1492. Due to the fact that many of the Jews with this surname were either murdered, or forced into Catholicism, the name is now quite common among Christians living in Spain and Latin America.
