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.
