Cadena Name Meaning
Catalan: metonymic occupational name for a maker of chains or perhaps for a jailer, from Catalan and Spanish cadena ‘chain’ (Latin catena). This form (singular) is rare as a surname in Castile, but frequent in Catalonia; the plural (Cadenas) occurs in both regions but is more frequent in the former.
