AGIRRE is one of the most common basques surnames, each basque surname has
it's origin in the name of a house or farm (baserria), that gave name to
the family owner, the problem is that only in Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa are more
than hundred farms with the name Agirre. I dont know how many are in Araba
and Nafarroa, but there are too.
Meaning: the name come from the word AGER or AGIR, and means manifest,
clear, evident..... the sense is House very visible,
There are lots of proves of Nobility, and lots of coat of arms of families
with the surname AGIRRE
There are a lot of derivated surnames
The only way to know the origin of your family is to make a complete
pedigree chart, and ty to link it with a house Agirre.
