This surname is found in Ondarroa.

Aboitiz comes from the root aboi (abai or arandano, which is a type of berry like blueberry or huckleberry) and the suffix ti (abundance) combined with iz or itz (a suffix which denotes location). So I suppose the original home of this family may have been close to a large berry patch or perhaps the family raised berries.

The coat of arms is a field of red on which a cross of gold (with equal appendages) lies. At each corner there is a leaf of gold. The border is silver with eight black ermine.
