The Italian name Canales 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."

Canales Early Origins



The surname Canales was first found in the area around the city of Ferrara, where Tommaso Canali was a judge in the mid 12th century. One line of the Canales family originated in the Polcevera valley, northwest Italy, and was first mentioned in documents dating from the year 1100. Of this line, Emanuele Canale was a member of the faction that supported Paolo Da Novi in 1506. 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.

Canales Spelling Variations



Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristi c. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Canales include Canal, Canale, Canali, Da Canale, Da CanÓl, Da Canal, Canaletto, Canalini, Canales and many more.
