HARYMBAT Surname of a benedictine from Belloc (Lapurdi), than in 1950 was the author of a method to learn basque.

The meaning is very difficult to know. in basque ARIMA: means gost, and ARIN: means quick. but I don't think that these are correct meanings for this surname.

After write this I have look it up in a book about basque surname wrote by an Iparraldean and this surname is only mentioned, without comments.


Meaning: HARYN: means Sand, and BAT: riverside or valey. So the meaning would be "Sandy valley" but in the sense of riverside. As basque surnames are names of farms the complete meaning is "the house on the sandy riverside"

Bat means one in basque, but the author thinks that in this case is not the basque bat, but the Gascoine or Aquitain bat that means riverside or valey.

There were families with this surname in: Provinve of Benafarroa: Donibane Garazi (St.Jean de Pied de Port),
Provinve of Labourdi: Bayona,
Province of Zuberoa:Maule

There are also families with this surname in the Region of Bearn
