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."
