In Ulster it may also be from Ó Canannáin ‘descendant of Canannán’, a diminutive of the personal name.2 English: from Middle English canun ‘canon’ (Old Norman French canonie, canoine, from Late Latin canonicus). In medieval England this term denoted a clergyman living with others in a clergy house; the surname is mostly an occupational name for a servant in a house of canons, although it could also be a nickname or even a patronymic.
