a village close to Ibarrangelua named Ereno (with egne): Akorda Etxebarria,
Akorda Goitia, and Akorda Beitia, basque families took their names from the
house they lived, so it is clear that your familie lived in the house
Akorda Goitia, and took their name, the meaning is The house Akorda in the
High part, Akorda beitia means the house Akorda in the Down part.
The meaning of Akorda is not very clear. Oyhamburu says that is composed by
ARRI and KORTA, arri means stone or stony, and KORTA can be communal land,
but also can be stable. I prefer the meaning: Stony communal land
