Kantola Name Meaning
Finnish: from kanto, kanta ‘stump’, ‘base’ + the local suffix -la, applied originally as a topographic name or a habitational name from a farm so named. Later, during the name conversion movement of the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was adopted as an ornamental name by Finns bearing Swedish surnames.
