The noble Spanish surname Anda is of toponymic origin, that is, it derives from the place where the original bearer lived or held land. The roots of the name lie in the Basque language, "anda" is composed of the elements "an-, ana" signifying "pastoral," and the locative suffix "-da." Thus, the surname Anda signifies "one who lives in the pastoral region of Anda."
