Meaning: I have read that the meaning is blackberrys place, but I think is
not very believable, so We don,t know the meaning. AIN is a tipical sufix
of many basque surnames (Indurain,Zerain, Barasoain, Andoain,Beasain), but
is not clear if the origin of this sufix is basque or lathin, it appears
offenly with old personal names to make a derivative . So the only thing I
can say about the meaning is that I dont know. The Hipotesis of
ACUTAIN:AQUITAIN cannot be forgotten.
