What is the meaning of my surname?
I've tried searching everywhere for the origin of my surname but all I got is that it's spanish.
I have absolutely no idea what it means.

Manansala is not Spanish but Filipino as you can see at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filipino_name#Autochthonous_surnames. To find the origin, you'd first have to know what language it comes from.

Manansala comes from the word "sansala." It is a compound of the prefix "man-" with "sansala" with the initial "s" of the latter word becoming silent in pronunciation.Sansala means generally "interdiction; injunction; prohibition." The prefix man- indicates someone who performs something, thus, Manansala would mean "one who interdicts, prohibits, forbids, vetoes, etc."
