Where did the Spanish Arreguin family come from? What is the Spanish Arreguin family crest and coat of arms? When did the Arreguin family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Arreguin family history?

The noble Spanish surname Arreguin is of local origin, as it is derived from a particular place-name near which the original bearer lived or held land. In this instance, the surname Arreguin derives from the Basque words "arri," meaning "stone," and the local suffix "egi," which means "from, or slope." Therefore, the surname Arreguin literally means "one who lived in a stony place or one who lived by a rocky incline."
