    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Kendal in Cumbria, which takes its name from the river Kent + Old Norse dalr ‘valley’, or from the valley of the river Kent itself.

    English (of Welsh origin): from an Anglicized form of the Welsh personal name Cynddelw, which was borne by a famous 12th-century Welsh poet. It probably derives from a Celtic word meaning ‘exalted, high’ + delw ‘image, effigy’.
