The original bearer of the name Cardo, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful place named Cardenas in the region of Castilla la Vieja or in the place named Cardenas in the Rioja region. The place-name Cardenas is derived from the Aragonese word "cardelina," which means goldfinch. In Spanish, local surnames are often preceded by de, which is a prefix that means of or from and is indicative of a toponymic origin.
