This surname is found en the Zozaja (Oronoz, with a line in
Muskaria-Tudela; also in Garzain, and Arano (valley or Basaburua) [all
of these in Navarra]. It also has origins in Busunariz (Benabarra) and
Sara (Laburdi). One branch went to Mexico. And, obviously, from your
request, part of the family is found in Canada.
The name means "Camino de la fuente" (way or road of the fountain). From
the Basque "iturri, itur" (fountain) and "bide" (road).
Since you do not, yet, know the origin of your particular family I will
cite here just the coat of arms for those of the house of Oronoz which
is: a shield covered with a checker-board pattern of squares alternating
in silver and black.
