The noble surname Ancheta is of Basque local origin, deriving from a geographical or man-made feature near which the first bearer lived or held land. In this case, Ancheta is derived from the Basque word "antzi," meaning "swamp" and the suffix "-eta" which is a Basque ending denoting plurality. Therefore, the original bearer of the surname Ancheta was someone who was identified by the members of his community as "one who lives by the swamps."

Ancheta Early Origins



The surname Ancheta was first found in the northern Basque country in the city of Azpeitia. Early records show that members of this family were listed among the aristocracy of Guipuzcoa. The earliest reference to this surname is that of Ochoa Ortiz de Ancheta who was recorded in Azpeitia in 1348.
