Irish First Names
Kenneth [Cionaod] (m), a name usually associated more with Scotland than Ireland, seems to have been quite popular in Ireland during the Middle Ages in the form of Cinaed. The name Coinneach (English, Canice) was also translated into English as Kenneth. Kenneth MacAlpine (died c. 860) was king of Scots, whose reign united the Picts with the descendants of the Irish settlers in Scotland. Cinaeth O Hartagain (died 975) was an Irish poet.
