The noble Spanish surname Resabala is of locative origin, being derived from the geographic or man made feature in or near which the original bearer lived or held land. The name is derived from the contraction of two Basque elements "aretze" meaning "calf" and "zabal" meaning "abundance of." Therefore the surname Resabala may signify that its first bearer lived in a place where, either there were many calves or where calves were fattened before being slaughtered.
