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."

Arreguin Early Origins



The surname Arreguin 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.
