LEKUONA Lekuona means Good Place (Leku=place, ona=good). There are two caserios with this name in the Valley of Oiarzun (in Gipuzkoa). They are called Lekuona Garaikoa (that of above) and Lekuona Azpikoa (that of below). Other branches extend from there to Legazpia and other places in Gipuzkoa. There are many proofs of nobility recorded for this surname in Azkoitia, Oiarzun, Elgoibar, Fuenterrabia, Irun, Donostia, Eskoriaza, Mondragon, Bilbao, in the Juntas Generales of Bizkaia and in the Real Chancilleria of Vallodolid.

Looking in another book (also by J. Kerexeta as was the previous), we find other caserios Lekuona in Irun (Barrio of Behobia) and in Ondarribia (Barrio of Montania). There must have been another house Lecunoa in Legazpia since before 1520. It is recorded that a branch of this surname was established in Ecuador. Today, it is extended throughout Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa. In Mungia, there is a pastry shop that is named Lekuona.
