Cado oulivo ven a ben :
The origin of the name of Cadolive results from a patronymic transformation: in 1654 appears Mario Olino‘s name in Saint Savournin’s church books, written Ollino in 1674. Then, the name is gallicized in Olline in 1680, to become Ollive in 1744.
Between 1702 and 1766, numerous members of families Ollive lived around current Cadolive. “Enco d’ Olive“, (of the Provençal preposition ” encò “: “at”, indicating the “land of Olive”) became by contraction ” Codolive“.
In the 19th century, by mistake, “Codolive” was transformed into “Cadolive“.
The coat-armour is a stalk of olive tree surmounted overcome by the slogan “Cado oulivo ven a ben“, that is “Every olive succeeds well “.
