• Name. 371
It was common for children to take their mother's family name if that family is more prominent or distinguished than the father's family. Since Benaventura's mother was given the title of Doña, it is likely that her family was the more prominent family.

The name Esquibel, Asqueta and Arana are all Basque in origin, suggesting a strong Basque lineage in the antecedents of Buenaventura de Esquibel.
~ José Antonio Esquibel in NM Genealogist, June 1992, pg. 50
