AKUTAIN the origin of this surname is located in Idiazabal, in the quarter of Mendigorria (Gipuzkoa), there are two houses with the name Acutain-Azpi, and Acutain-Garakoa ( Downer Akutain , and Upper Akutain), there are a branche in Irun (Gip)

There is also in Idiazabal a house named ACITAIN, and J. Kerexeta says that ACUTAIN is a derivation of ACITAIN ( can be or cannot be)

Proves of Nobility: In Idiazabal (1738), and Valladolid (1739) Coat of arms:(in spanish), Cuartelado: 1st y 4th, en oro, un jabali, pasante de sable; 2nd en gules un arbol de su color, acostado de dos panelas de oro; 3rd en plata un lobo pasante de sable.

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.
