The name Canny arose in two distinct Irish Septs, the O'Cannys and the MacCannys. The O'Cannys are descended from the powerful O Caithniadh sept, whereas the MacCannys are descended from the Mac Annaidh (later Mac Cannaidh) Sept.

The surname Canny was first found in Thomond (Irish: Tuadh Mumhan), what is now County Clare, and in Erris, now County Mayo, where the O Caithniadh family of the Ui Fiachrach Muaidhe were chiefs until the 13th century.
