This surname proceed from Mundaka (Basque region of Bizkaia)
and Segura (Basque Region of Gipuzkoa), but is not very clear its origin,
because I cannot find a farm with this name. Is documented that in 1477
lived in Onate (read Ognate) a man named Pero Anasagasti. I am from Biskay
and this surname is tippical from a Village in the Coast named Mundaka,
There was a house (not farm) in Mundaka with this name, but I think that in
this case the name only shows who was the owner. The meaning of the surname
is difficult to know SAGASTI can be Place of apple Trees (Sagar:apple,
sufix Di or Ti: group of trees) or Place of Willow trees (Sarats:Willow), I
think it is more probable the first one. The meaning of ANA is not clear,
can be pasture or grass. There is a surname SAGASTI, so can be that
Anasagasti were a variation of this. The prefix ANA appears in other basque
names, like Anakabe, Anabitarte etc...
There are two Coats of arms of Anasagasti, if you are interested I will
copy the description
