CJ’s given name, Cannon, was handed down from his father’s side of the family as well.  Research has shown that one origin of the name is Scot-Irish. Variations of this origin include: Cannon, McCannon, MacCannon, O’Cannon Canning, BuChannon.

Another derivation is a piece of music that uses imitative counterpoint. Canons started out in Italy/France under the name of caccia (‘caccia’ from the latin for chase). Also Greek; They had kanna (meaning reed), which changed to kanon (meaning rule or rod), which was picked up by latin ‘canon’ (meaning rule or model), which was passed on to Old French ‘canon’ (meaning leaned), and finally to English (an accepted rule).
