Yzabal (izabal)


Found in Urkabustaiz (Alava) in 1689. Also, there were houses in Argentina and Columbia.

This surname means "place with a lot of cat tails." This comes from "i" (meaning junco in Spanish - cat tail) and the suffixes "tza" (abundant) and "bal" (place of/denoting location). Another author translates it as "i" (cat tail) and "zabal" (wide or extensive). Just about anyway you look at it, their must have been a lot of cat tails growing around that original house.

The coat of arms: On red, a gold spindel or distaff (The spanish word used is fuso, in newer spanish huso). The border of the shield is green.
