Where did the Italian Canali family come from? What is the Italian Canali family crest and coat of arms? When did the Canali family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Canali family history?

The Italian name Canali is derived from one of several places named Canale in northern Italy. The place name comes from the Italian word "canale," meaning "canal." Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, local surnames, created from place names are also found. These local names, are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land, and often bear the prefix "di," meaning "from."

There are many variations of most of those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. Some of these come from regional differences, like the tradition of ending northern names in "o" and southern names in "i". Others come from inaccuracies in the recording process, which were extremely common in the eras before dictionaries standardized spelling. Some of the spelling variations of Canali are Canal, Canale, Canali, Da Canale, Da Canàl, Da Canal, Canaletto, Canalini, Canales and many more.

First found in the area around the city of Ferrara, where Tommaso Canali was a judge in the mid 12th century.

Otto Canella (d. before 1143) was Consul of Genoa in 1133 and is an ancestor of the House of Grimaldi, the family which to this day, rules Monaco.
