Cantu Early Origins



The surname Cantu was first found in Lombardy (Italian: Lombardia), where the ancient ancestors of the Cantu family once lived. The name Cantu means "circular," or "rolling stone." The name is most likely toponymic in origin, meaning that it was taken from a geographic feature near the family's home; in this case, the family probably lived near a round and prominent rock.
