The name Picardo is taken from Picardy, a region in Northern France; it would have been given to a man who came to Italy from Picardy, which explains the higher concentration of the name in the north; France is north-west of Italy; so Tuscany would be one of the first places in Italy that someone coming from France would pass through, especially if they were coming by sea to avoid crossing the mountains.The spelling variations that end with "o" are mostly from the south of Italy, whereas names that end in "i" are mostly from the north.

Picardo Early Origins



The surname Picardo was first found in Tuscany (Italian: Toscana), a region in central Italy. Bearers of this surname have been found in nearly every part of Italy, though the family seems to be concentrated in Tuscany and there are more of them in the north than the south.
