Zalacain (zalakain, Zalazain)
In researching your friend's surname information, I noticed that our
family name was not present. I'm sure our family would be very
appreciative if it were added, as we would be delighted to contact
any relatives here (in the states) or
abroad. The information is as follows (taken from Diccionario
Onomastico y Heraldico Vasco, Bilbao, 1970)
ZALACAIN (Zalakain, Zalazain)
1. Location of ancestral home: En Tolosa y en Albistur, segun Isasti en 1625.
2. Meaning of name: Segun L. M., sobre el pastizal (de ala, pasto, y gain, encima, con Z protet)
3. Proofs of nobility: En Tolosa (1707)
4. Description of coat of arms: Segun Cadenas y Vincent: en azur, un leon monstruoso, de oro, rampante.
