The noble Spanish surname Arregui 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 Arregui derives from the Basque words "arri," meaning "stone," and the local suffix "egi," which means "from, or slope." Therefore, the surname Arregui literally means "one who lived in a stony place or one who lived by a rocky incline."

Arregui Early Origins



The surname Arregui was first found in the province of Guipuzcoa in the Basque country, where the family had four ancestral seats. These seats were found in the districts of Anguiozar, Aztigarreta, Azpeitia and Azcoitia.
