Occasionally, and in the Isle of Man, the surname derives from Mac Canann ‘son of Cano or Canán’, which in Ireland was Anglicized McCann or McConnon . See also Connon . The personal name is from Gaelic cano ‘wolf cub’, of which Canán is a diminutive. In Ulster Cannon may also be shortened from Ó Canannáin ‘descendant of Canannán’, a pet form (double diminutive) of the personal name. This was a cheiftan family in Donegal, and the name was particularly common there.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.French: variant of Canon .
