Macapagal (rare variant: Makapagal) is a Filipino surname derived from the Kapampangan language. An uncommon surname, it means "shall last forever".

The family claims noble descent from the legitimate grandchildren of Lakandula, the last Rajah or King of Tondo. It is the only known branch of the Seludong's royal family to have survived the Majapahit Empire's invasion, the Sultanate of Brunei's pogrom against native royals, Chinese warlord Limahong's massacres, and the fallout from the Tondo Conspiracy.

The family is said to have migrated to Pampanga after the Spanish assumed control of Manila.
