The surname Arrivas or Arribas is of Basque toponymic origin, deriving from the place name where the initial bearer lived or held land. In this instance, the surname Arribas comes directly from “Arribas”, which is the name of a town in the province of Guipuzcoa (Basque Country, northern Spain). Therefore, the original bearer of the surname Arribas was someone who was identified by the members of his community as “one who hailed from Arribas”. The place name Arribas derives from the Basque words “(h) arri”, which means “stone, cliff”, and “iba”, which signifies “under”. This toponym has been interpreted by Basque etymologists as “place under the cliff, or under the crag”.
