GAMINDE Jaime Kerexeta says in his Diccionario Onomastico y Heraldico Vasco: In Bilbao. ESCUDO: En oro una barra de sinople.

In other book of Jaime kerexeta about Houses of Bizkaia, appears that there is a House named Gaminde in a Small Village named MARURI (at 20 kmts of Bilbao), so this house must be the origin of the surname because usually basque surnames are names of houses, families took their names from the one of their house.

Philippe Oyhanburu says in his Diccionary of Basque surnames than the meaning of Gaminde can be: The high part of the mountain or hill, or also can be mountain of deers, I think than the first aception is better, the explanation of the meaning is: GAIN or GAN means over, or high part, and Mendi means mountain or also hill, so both gives GANMENDI, and then Gaminde

The surname is documented in Bilbao since 1798

In 1704 the Owner of the Gaminde House of Maruri, was Antonio Gaminde, in 1745 was Juan Bautista Gaminde
