Guidera Family History

Guidera Surname Meaning

Italian (Sicily of Albanian origin): possibly a nickname derived from Albanian vidër (definite form vidra) ‘otter’. The surname is very rare in Italy. It originates from the ancient Albanian-speaking community of Piana degli Albanesi Sicily where the Albanian Christian refugees from the Turkish occupation of the Balkans settled in the 15th century. Irish (Tipperary and Dublin): of uncertain origin. It has been suggested that it may be from Irish Mac Giodaire a personal name or byname based on giodar ‘haste’. It has also been suggested that it may derive from Mag Fhuadaire a personal name meaning ‘wanderer’. However it seems more likely that it is an immigrant name from Sicily (see above).
