Used by the Basque writer and Catholic priest José de Ariztimuño Olaso (1896-1936), who was killed by the Fascists in the Spanish Civil War. Aitzol was a pseudonym possibly taken from letters in his surname, (A)r(iz)timuño (Ol)aso; or perhaps Aitzol came from the hypothetical Basque place name h(aitz ol)a meaning "quarry, stonemason's workshop" from the words haitz "rock, stone" and ola "workplace, factory".
