It is the hypochoristic of the Lombard Gundhard "Strong in battle" (from the germ. * Gundh-«Battle» and by * Hardhu-«Powerful, strong, Valiant»), Latinized in Contardus, whence the ital. Contardo. Not likely a derivation from the LAT. Tardus, not attested as a person's name, though phonetically possible. F. Violi, surname in Modena and Modenese, 1996.
