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