This originally is found in Berastegui and Inza. The surnames Inza, Ince, and Incera from Berastegui are from the same lineage and share the same coat of arms.

This surname comes from the word Ini (meaning junco or cat tail - the plant) and the suffix -tza (meaning abundant). So I can only guess that the original family home had a lot of cat tails growing nearby. According to another authority, the surname may also have been derrived from Ince (meaning pasture).

The coat is quartered (divided in fourths). The 1st and 4th quadrants each have a silver dog with black spots on a field of blue. The 2nd and 3rd each include a green tree and two red ensigns (flags) crossed infront of the tree's trunk.
