The Caliendo surname is of uncertain derivation, but it may have its roots with the word "calendula," which is a cultivated marigold.

Caliendo Early Origins



The surname Caliendo was first found in Nocera dei Pagani (presently called Nocera Inferiore,) in Salerno Province, Kingdom of Naples, where they trace their Norman-Viking origins back to Stefano Calenda who lived in 982.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
