Blundo Early Origins



The surname Blundo was first found in Sardinia (Italian: Sardegna, Sardinian: Sardigna), the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. In 238 B.C the Carthaginians revolted and Rome took over. Saracens occupied 720 A.D. 1164 found Frederick Barbarosa giving the island to Barisone. Pisans succeeded in the 13th. Arragons took over in 1403 and it remained a Spanish province until the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1848 complete political union with Piedmont and Italy was granted. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The name Blundo comes from the Italian word "biondo," which means "blond." The name therefore most likely originated as a nickname for someone with a very light beard or hair.
