From Bergara, Eibar, and Anguiozar in Guipuzcoa.
The meaning of this surname is "the house of oru or orube". The name
Orube means field of oats.
The coat of arms is divided in two vertically. On the left half are two
green pine trees and five golden leaves between them arranged in an aspa
("x"). The field of this half is gold. The right half is red with a gold
horizontal band across the top third of the shield. There is half of a
green tree on the bottom portion with golden fruit and a black and
silver goat has its front legs up on the trunk (maybe trying to reach
the fruit). A border of red surrounds the whole crest, it contains eight
golden aspas ('X").
