The original bearer of the name Aguirre, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries conquered Spain. The Aguirre family originally lived in a noble or reputable place in a village. The surname Aguirre originally derived from the Basque word Ager which meant visible or prominent.
