||Origin of Surname "SANDANO" by Guest829
A complete absence of information on this name, but abhorring a vacuum, I blunder on.
It might be of locative origin. A map of Turin shows an area (suburb?) on the southern margin of the city labelled "Sanda". Might a person from there be called a Sandano?
Still in a locative vein: there is a minor place name, San Dono, lying between Padua and Treviso, presumably called after some obscure saint. Could that have been corrupted over time to Sandano? We'll probably never know.
Even if these guesses were discounted I'd still lean towards a locative explanation.
