Armendariz Name Meaning

Spanish (Armendáriz; of Basque origin): patronymic from the Basque personal name Armendari or Armentari, from Latin armentarius ‘herdsman’. Spanish and French variant of Armendaritze, a habitational name from a village in Low Navarre named Armendaritze. The place name is commonly said to be composed of the elements ar(ri) ‘rock’ + mend(i) ‘mountain’ + aritz ‘oak’. However, this is probably a folk etymology; the place name is more likely the same as the patronymic surname, except that -itz here is to be interpreted as a locative suffix: ‘Armendari’s place’ or perhaps ‘herdsman’s place’.
