Mariñelarena or Marinelarena is a Basque surname that has its origins in the village of Betelu, located north of Navarra, Spain and close to the frontier with Gipuzkoa.

Etymology and history[edit]

The surname means in the Basque language "...of the sailor". Usually surnames were originated in the Basque Country as name of houses, being families known by the name of the house they inhabited once. Few basque surnames were of patronymic origin, but there are some, and Mariñelarena could be one of them, meaning "(son) of the sailor". However, it could also be referring to a house: "(house) of the sailor".


Mariñelarena is a family recognized with a coat-of-arms, because most Basque families (if not all) have their nobility recognized.

It is conformed by a two Argent (silver) flags over an Azure (blue) tower with Argent (silver) small windows, that stands in an Or (gold) background.
