Sardiña in Gallicia
Posted by: Guillermo Phillips Date: August 23, 2001 at 08:11:50

Hello to all my Sardiñan cousins. My grandfather was called Sardiña Prieto and originally lived in Galicia - although I'm not sure where. He moved to Almeria in Andalucia, aparently it's not a very common surname there. He was often called 'Sardi' for short.

I wonder if anyone had any ideas on the origin of the name? Has it got to do with a family who fished for sardines? Or did they originate from the island of Sardinia? Or does it mean something else?
