This is a surname that is widely extended throughout the
Basque Country. It has original houses in Orduņa, Vizcaya;
Artiga, Guipuzcoa; and en Anzuola, San Sebastian (although
carefully note that San Sebastian is not a province).
This surname comes from the name of the Valley of Aran in
conjunction with "buru" (which means head or the highest or
top part of something. This probably indicates that the
original house may have been in the highest part of the
valley or overlooking the valley.
On the coat of arms is a black bear leaning against a green
oak tree with its front paws, this is on a field of silver.
