Means "calf" or more specifically, "young bull" in Basque. In Basque mythology, Aatxe is either the androgynous deity MARI embodied as a young cow or bull, or a lesser shapeshifting spirit that takes the form of a bull and occasionally a human; the latter emerges at night, especially in stormy weather, from his cave dwelling in the Basque mountains.
