Candeloro History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most common type of family name found in Sicily is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found.

The surname Candeloro is a name for a person who derives their name from the word Candido, which means candid, white, innocent.
