The Italian surname Cedeno derives from the word "savio," meaning "wise," or "learned;" thus it was likely originally a nickname for a wise or knowledgeable man.

Cedeno Early Origins



The surname Cedeno was first found in Venice, a city and seaport occupying one of the most remarkable sites of the world. It is rich in ancient palaces, churches, libraries, galleries, monuments, statues, treasures and artifacts. Its history is abundant in politics, art, religion, scholarship and conflict. An early record of this name shows that Ziliolo de Savina held the post of ducal secretary in Venice, in 1289. Another record shows the noble Savini di Siena family is on record holding lands in Sienna as early as 1355. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
