Etymological origin of Italian surname: Canopia


CANOPIA | CANOPPIA

Canopia, extremely rare, it would seem Sardinian, from the western side of the island, as well as the surname Canoppia, only slightly less rare, could derive from an altered dialectal form of the medieval Latin term canipa, which consisted in the administrative task of the manager of the foodstuffs of a community, or even more probably of nicknames based on the Spanish term canopia (canopy, a vaulted structure that can be matrimonial, stone, or even composed of the branches of trees), perhaps referring to artisans who build canopies.
