The distinguished surname Zarate is of Spanish origin, derived from the name place where the initial bearer of the name resided. In this instance, the surname is derived from the place-name Zárate, located in the district of Zuya (Victoria) in northern Spain. According to etymologists, the place-name Zárate is derived from the Basque words "zara" meaning "forest" and "at(h)e" meaning "door," thus signifying "opening to the forest."

Zarate Early Origins



The surname Zarate was first found in the northern Basque region of Spain, near the city of Zárate. They began to branch out into other regions of the Iberian peninsula with the Christian Reconquest of Spain from the Muslims. The family established themselves in Vizcaya, Andalusia and Madrid. An early record of the surname is of Juan Ortiz de Zárate, who died in a bloody battle at the river Zadorra in the 14th century. The family was ennobled in the early 17th century when they were made members of the Orders of Santiago, Calatrava and Alcantara.
