FORURIA The origin of this surname is FORUA, a little village near Gernika, there exist 4 baserriak or farms with this name in Forua (Foruria beazkoa, Foruria kalzadakoa, Foruria Goikoa, and Foruria Goxeazkoa), I think that the meaning is FORUA (the village) and URIA: Town or group of houses. The meaning of Forua is not very clear but probably comes from the Lathin word:Forum and in this case means "Market place"
