Tovar may refer to:

Tovar (surname)

Tovar, usually preceded by the particle de (meaning from), is a surname that was adopted in the Middle-Ages by a Castilian noble house of visigothic ancestry that received the lordship of the village of Tovar from Fernando III. It has since spread to several Spanish and a few Portuguese branches.

The Tovar surname in the Americas appears mainly as a toponymic derived from the many settlements of this name founded there by the Spanish, and therefore does not share the same genealogical origin. Recent DNA testing does show that some families with the Tovar surname in the Americas appear to have descended from the Tovars of Spain and Portugal
