In Reply to: CANAAN family name by Janice Sims of 3600

Hi everyone,
My names is Marc KANAAN (CANAAN), I still 100% Lebanese and attach to my roots… I live in Paris since 2002. In fact, my grand father once told me the following story: “Two brothers and a sister arrived to Lebanon in the 1000 A.C. They arrived to north of Lebanon. They were nobles… The ruler of Tripoli (City in North of Lebanon) wanted to marry the girl, to escape the marriage and conflicts, the brothers suns changed their names and propagate all over Lebanon (as an exemple, Hadad Family is KANAAN originated). One of the brothers escaped to Chouf (Abay) and kept KANAAN name”.
