The Canova surname is derived from the Italian word "cŕnova," meaning "cupboard," "cellar," or "food store;" and thus the name most likely originally an occupational name for someone who worked as a seller of supplies.

Canova Early Origins



The surname Canova was first found in Vetulonia an ancient town in Etruria in Italy. The ancient Romans kept their Magisterial Insignia there including their fasces, purple togas, carule chair, and brazen trumpets. Still, there are the remains of massive limestone walls. Many tombs, artifacts, relics have been found dating back to 850 B.C. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
