Name Meaning

Spanish (and Portuguese): possibly from the Basque occupational name Arotxa, Arotza, from arotz (arotx) ‘smith’, ‘carpenter’ + the article suffix -a, or alternatively a topographic from a rocha ‘the rock’ (with the Portuguese or Galician article). This name is chiefly associated with the Canary Islands.
