Mihura


MIHURA In Zugarramurdi and Urdax or Urdazubi (Nabarra), and in Argentina. Mitxelena says that the mening is "muerdago", sorry but I don't know it's translation to english, Muerdago is a vegetal that grows in the branches of some trees, and is used in Christmas as an ornate.

There is a prove of Nobility in Bilbao , 1749, with many information about the family (says Kerexeta)

Coat of arms (in spanish): Partido. 1,- En oro una encina de sinople y dos jabalies de sable, pasantes al pie del tronco., 2.- En sinople, una banda de oro engolada en cabezas de dragones, de sinople, perfiladas de oro, y en punta ondas de agua de azur y plata.

There are many families with this name in Iparralde (more in Laburdi), but there is not good information about basque surnames in Iparralde, so we cannot knoe exactly if the origin is Nabarra or Iparralde.

There are a lot of Basque surnames in Andalucia, and various bulls marks have basque names, To say today "a Mihura" in spanish is to say something very big and difficult. For example, to answer to a note of our dear girls (Anzi, Mila and Co.) is like to fight with a Mihura..:-)
