I'd like the person who edited in the bit about everyone with the surname Cárdenas (except through marriage) being able to trace their lineage back to a family in Sicily to maybe provide some more information, like a citation or two. I'm really interested to read more about this find.

Yeah...this kind of sounds like a bunch of BS. Where are the proofs of these claims?

According to the Spanish wikipedia, the surname Cardenas derived from the town in La Rioja. And this town got his name from the flower Carduus. So Carduus-->Cardenas(place)-->Cardenas as family name. Probably in the begging was used "De Cardenas", common in medieval Spain, when people used to use his place of birth as surnames.--Edhu9 (talk) 07:52, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
