In the French Basque country, in the Basque province of Behenavarra, there is a castlle with the name "GARRO" located in the valley of Garro. This surname was recordeded in Laburdi in the year 1000. There are families with this name in Navarra (Elizondo and Tudela), in Bizkaia (Busturia and Ondarroa) and in Gipuzkoa (various villages).

Possible meaning(s) of the name:

Some authoroties translate GARRO to mean "by flame", or "place of the flame," but others think that it it comes from ARRI, which means "of stone."

The above was polished by Grace A. Garro. Thanks!
