Name Root:
It is the anglicized form of both Coinneach and Cináed. This name was borne by the Scottish king Kenneth (Cináed) Mac Alpin. 1) Coinneach means “fair or handsome,” more creative translations could be “child of the fair or handsome one, child of the wise ruler, child of the bright one, born of fire, fire-born, finely made, favored one, comely, or good looking.” 2) Cináed means son of Cionaodh (born of fire). Cion is an old Irish word for respect and affection, plus “Aodh,” a Gaelic personal name, initially the Celtic god of fire. The personal name probably means “beloved of Aodh.”
