The Alderetes did come from an area heavily saturated with Vascos but several Spanish genealogy sites say the name came from Asturias. Supposedly it is a Visigothic name derived from Alderedo. There were several Arian christian archbishops in Sapnish history with the surname Aldertus that precede the Islamic invasion of Spain. I list this because some people believe that anything that begins with "al" in the Spanish peninsula is derived from the Arabic.
