Aguerre (agerre)

AGUERRE (AGERRE) Jaime Kerexeta says in his Diccionario Onomastico y Heraldoco Vasco, that the origin of this surname is Donamaria in Nabarra, with branches in Nabarra (Gaztelu, Irun, Zia, Olkoz, Beasoain, Bera), in Gipuzkoa (Legazpia) in BEBABARRA: Ostabat (the main), Mixa, and Eleta. Laburdi and Bizkaia. I am not sure in the Kerexeta's version of the branches, because this is a tipical name of many basque houses, so is possible that there is not conection between ones and others

Is probably the same name than Agirre, but in a west version

Meaning: the name come from the word AGER or AGIR, and means manifest, clear, evident..... the sense is: House very visible, without trees, and probably in a high.

Places in Benabarra with families surnamed Aguerre: Somberraute, Amendeuix-Oneix, Behasque (1544),Bustince, St. Palais, St. Esteben, Helette 1539, Iholdy, Ostabat-Asme (1604), Juxue, Larceveau, Luxe, Uhart-Cize

There are also families in Laburdi and in other basque provinces.

I have found Coat of Arms from the Aguerre of AZME (Asme), Ostabat, and Mixe, if you want I will describe them for you
