Where did the Spanish Elizondo family come from? What is the Spanish Elizondo family crest and coat of arms? When did the Elizondo family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Elizondo family history?

The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Elizondo. The Spanish surname Elizondo is derived from the place name where the initial bearer lived or held land. In this case, "eleiza" is the Basque term for "church," and the suffix "-ondo" means near or beside. Thus, the surname Elizondo was derived from ancient Basque as the term for someone living near a church.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Elizonda, Eleizondo, Elizalde, Eliza and others.

First found in the Navarre- Basque region, one of the medieval Christian kingdoms of northern Spain. Early records show a presence of the Elizondo family in Pamplona, Navarre.
