The long and noble heritage behind the name of Cordero 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 Cordero family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Cordero was an occupational name for a shepherd. Further research showed the name was derived from the Spanish word Cordero, which means lamb.

Cordero Early Origins



The surname Cordero was first found in Asturias, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
