This surname originated en Eibar y en Mendaro, Guipuzcoa.
The meaning comes from pago (a beechnut tree) and the suffix
meaning place or place of the beechnut trees.
The coat of arms for the area of Motrico (which you
mentioned) is "mantelado" which means it is divided into
three sections. The sections are nearly triangular with the
first and third portions inverted and the second section
having its base across the bottom of the shield and its
point between the other two sections. The first portion (far
left) is a field of blue upon which lies a golden cross. The
second section is a field of silver with four horizontal red
stripes across it. The third (far right) is a field of green
with a hill of natural color upon which sits a stone castle.
