IRIGOYEN (IRIGOIEN) The meaning is IRI :Town or group of houses, and
GOIEN: in the high part, so the complete meaning is: (the house) in the
higher part of the Town. In the north part of our country was not very
normal the groups of houses so IRI or URI means today city or Town, but in
the past was simply a group of houses.
