Chindamo is typically Calabrian from Reggio, from Melicucco, Laureana del Borrello, Cinquefrondi, Giffone, Galatro, Anoia and Rosarno, it should derive from a Greek nickname originating from an alteration of the ancient Greek term ???????? kindynos (adventure, dangerous company, danger), perhaps to remember the parent's participation in a particular company.
