Origin of Canto, Meaning of Canto

Origin: CANTON is a polygenetic surname ? in other words, it was coined independently in several places. Not all bearers of the name are related, though a large proportion are, and the only way to solve questions of derivation is to trace separate lines back to the days when surnames were forming in a given area and to study etymological evidence based on the earliest forms of the name. I cannot pretend to have done this extensively except in the (important) case of Pembrokeshire and, even there, more work remains to be done.
