Spanish language originated on Iberian Peninsula which is in the Southwestern region of Europe. It started during the end of fifteen century with the colonization of America. During this time, Spanish had been developed in Iberian but was not known as Spanish. It was towards the end of sixth century, a nomadic tribe moved into this area. They were from central Europe and had a mix of Iberians. This resulted in a new group of people who were called as Celtriberians. This is because they had developed a form of Celtic language.
It was only during the nineteenth century, region was named as Hispania. These Hispanic people learned a new language- Latin. These inhabitants started learning from Romans like traders, soldiers and settlers. This developed a mix of Latin and Celtiberian language. As it had many of the words and phrases adapted from classic Latin language but a mix of Celtiberian, it was called as Vulgaris Latin. This eventually evolve into modern Spanish.
Visigoths took over the region, but even then Latin language remained dominant. This continued until moors arrived and conquered the region. They had more of Arabic speaking people and this led to Arabic as the dominant language of the region. Vulgaris Latin still remained the dominant language in regions dominated by Christians. They tried to conquer other regions and once the Moorish Spain was reclaimed by them, Vulgaris Latin returned as the official language.
