SPIRIDION (Σπυρίδιον).  A Greek form of Italian Spiridione (q.v.).  Some authors, like Long, make this an occupational name for a "basket maker," from σπυρίς (a round basket).  See Yonge's note under Spiridon.  Others, like Moody, make it a diminutive of Spiro (q.v.), Latin spiritus, meaning "breath of the gods." (What Is Your Name?, Moody, 1863).  Usage:  Croatia, Greece, Illyria.
    Spiridion Brusina (d. 1908), was a Croatian zoologist. (Wiki)

... "They took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets (spuridas) full."  "The ides are at last come, Spurina."  SPIRIDION (Greek hermit) = SAUSSURE (Genevese savan): osier seller, basket maker. (Personal and Family Names, Long, 1883).
