I know the history of the origins of the surname - for all those who speak spanish, here is the URL of the web page of Ayala´s land at Alava, Euskadi, Spain:

But I don´t agree about the origins of the name in itself. I think there weren´t hebrew people at the north of Spain at the nineth century (I´m not sure, but, i.e., Aiara is the correct spelling, in Euskara/Basque, for Ayala, and "t,aiara" means "airplane" in moorish, but it doesn´t mean that Ayala means Airplane.
