Yip, well done. It's Ootmarsum, the town where I was born and returned to live in.
I got permission from local government (after payment) to use this sign on the worldwide internet. I'm promoting this lovely city by doing so.

That's what I thought of first but after searching on the net I was unable to confirm it - so I opted for the surname answer. Nice coat of arms. Here's my birthplace coat of arms (St. Helens, Merseyside):

The motto ' Ex Terra Lucem' (Out of the Earth Light) refers to the fact that there were many coal mines in and around the town.

and the coat of arms of Castrillon, the municipality where my village (Salinas) is located:

I won't go into details but the cross is the 'Cross of Victory' (symbol of Asturias) and refers to the Reconquest of Spain from the Moors which started in Asturias.
