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