Spanish (Cárdenas): habitational name from any of the places in the provinces of Almería and La Rioja named Cárdenas, from the feminine plural of cárdeno ‘blue, bluish purple’ (from Late Latin cardinus, from cardus ‘thistle’). Presumably the noun tierras ‘lands’ is to be understood, and the reference is to land covered with bluish plants, such as thistles or vines. Compare De Cardenas .
