This is a list of famous Basque people. For this purpose, people considered are those hailing from the extended Basque Country (includes Navarre and the French Basque Country).

In particular

  • born or resident in the Basque Country, unless self-identifying as not Basque (e.g. people self-identifying as Galician or French rather than Basque.)
  • people born outside the Basque Country of Basque ancestry that either speak Basque or self-identify as being of Basque stock.

This list does not contain people outside the Basque Country who happen to have one or more Basque surnames. For people of Basque ancestry in general, please see People with Basque ancestors.
