Cordova Family HistoryThis is a Spanish locational surname, recorded in the spellings of Cordova, Cordoba, Cordobes,Cordoves, Kordova, Kordovani, and Kurdvani. The city itself is ancient, the name pre-dating known records and the meaning is uncertain, however a probable translation is 'the new place' from the Roman (Latin) 'cordarius' meaning 'new' and 'obra', a construction. The Romans occupied most of the Spanish mainland from the 1st century a.d. until the collapse of their empire in 410. Many Spanish words and names derive from this period, although the surnames did not become hereditary until around the 16th century in many areas of the country.
