From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of notable family names, including that of the distinguished labastida family. Originally, the people in this region went by one (personal) name. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. These names then began to become "fixed" or hereditary between the generations. One of the types of names adopted as surnames were those derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name, and generally reflected some physical characteristics or other attribute of the first person that used the name. The labastida surname derives from the Old French word "bataille" from Latin "battualia" both meaning "battle," and as such was likely originally a nickname for a combative or violent person.

labastida Early Origins



The surname labastida was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this esteemed family has held a family seat from ancient times.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Ex bello pax
Motto Translation: Of war and peace
