|Origin of Canu, Meaning of Canu
Origin: The name started with descendants of King Kanute/Canute. When they came over from England the name got retranslated with the regional accents. William Cornett is the one that started in the United States. I have more history on it if you are interested. I have done some research on King Canute, who turns out to be a very honorable King and was mentioned in William Bennett's Book of Virtues.
