I write you just to say that the word "mendi" means mountain in english.
For example the surname ARIZMENDI is:
ARIZ, coming from "haritza" that is a tree and MENDI, mountain.
OTA, comes from "otea" that is also a tree and MENDI, mountain.
And for last, mine, ARMENDARIZ:
AR, coming from "harri", stone
MEN, coming from "mendi", mountain
and ARIZ, coming from "haritz" a tree.
So some trees in a mountain full of stones.
