    It is a Spanish name. Now, not everyone with the same surname are related or shares ancestors.

    Also if you find a coat of arms with Estrada under or over it, it belongs to one individual man not to everyone with the surname Estrada.

    There is a mistaken belief that coats of arms belong to surnames. So, please don't be taken in.

    The last name Estrada means road in portuguese...but the name is said to have Spanish origin not Portugese. Here is a good website that describes more of the Estrada background.
