CANTUS > *CANTIO

This name derives from the Brythonic “*Cantio”, meaning “rim, border”, in turn derives from the latin word “cantus”, meaning “rim of iron for the wheel, wheel, rim”. Kent is a county in South East England, and one of the home counties. The ceremonial county boundaries of Kent include the shire county of Kent and the unitary borough of Medway. Kent has a nominal border with France halfway through the Channel Tunnel, as well as a defined boundary with Essex in the middle of the Thames Estuary.
