BASQUE NAMES OF TOWN AND PLACES IN BIZKAIA

by Erlantz Ganboa

 

This study is a regeneration of the Basque names in Bizkaia. In many cases the Basque regeneration is based on names of family. But before the 12th century, family names were not common except for noble houses.

For names before the 12th century, the study is based in old texts, and in the similarity of the actual name with Basque roots.

 

Notes: (num)  More than one meaning, (S) Sanctuary, monastery (+) Deserted town, (D) District / area, (M) Municipality, (b) Hermitage (baseleiza), (m) Mountain, (river) River, (h) Height

 

I know that here they are not all the site-names in Bizkaia. Please send to me other names you know.
