AKARREGI I have found two baserriak with this name in Getaria (Akarregi
aundia, eta Akarregi Txikia). In Hondarribia is there a baserri Akartegi.
The only baserri with this name in Bizkaia is in Mendexa, but there is
something strange, in the Census of 1704 the name is Agirregi, and in 1745
Acarregi, I suposse than the one of 1704 was an errata.
J, Kerexeta says that are branches in Zaratamo and Lekeitio.
Meaning: There are two theorys. The one of Mitxelena is that AKAR or AKER,
means what you supose and EGI can be the top of the Hill, or can be
TEGI:place. The other theory is that AKAR is a plant:in spanish Ajerato (I
dont know what is that).
