From the historical and enchanting region of Spain
emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Cardozo family. The original bearer of the name Cardozo, 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.
The surname Cardozo was first found in La Rioja, in northern Spain.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Cárdenas, de Cárdenas, Cardenas, de Cardenas, Cárdena, de Cárdena, Cardena, de Cardena, Cardenes, de Cardenes, Cardo, de Cardo and many more.
