The long and noble heritage behind the name of Cordeiro first began in medieval Spain. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Cordeiro family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Cordeiro was an occupational name for a shepherd. Further research showed the name was derived from the Spanish word Cordero, which means lamb.

Cordeiro Early Origins
