Originally of Oņate, Guipuzcoa where at first it was called the house of Izurrategui and later house of Antuena. It is a lineage that proceeds from Garibay since they share the same coat of arms.

This name means "paso de la colina" (a narrow passage between the hills). It comes from "oin" (hill) and "ate" (narrow pass or small door or entry).

According to a heraldic certification of 1483, the arms are as follows: A deer, in the attitude of running, in a field of wheat with an eagle (or a crow or a vulture) on its hindquarters with it's wings outstretched.
