The distinguished Spanish surname Muxica is of Basque toponymic origin, deriving from the place name where the first bearer lived or held land. This toponym derives from the Basque word "muxica" which signifies either "peach, peach-tree or fern." Thus, this place name can be interpreted as "place of the peach orchard" or "place where ferns grew in abundance." Therefore, the original bearer of the surname Muxica was someone who was identified by the members of his community as "one who hailed from Múgica."

Muxica Early Origins



The surname Muxica was first found in the town located in the district of Guernica, Vizcaya in the Basque Country.
