Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cardano


Cardani is typical of the Milanese and Como area, Cardano is typical of the Varese area, with a stock also in the Bari area, the Lombard stocks should derive from the toponym Cardano al Campo (VA) or from Cardana always in the Varese area, the Apulian stock should instead derive from the medieval name Cardanus of which we have an example in a deed of 1389 where it reads among other things: "... Cardanus filius quondam Tomaxii consul vicinorum ...", important traces of these surnames we find them in 1500 with the mathematician, doctor and astrologer Girolamo Cardano (Pavia, 24 September 1501 - Rome, 21 September 1576).
