Name Meaning

English and Irish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Courtenay near Sens in northern France, or some other place similarly named, from the name of a Gallo-Roman landlord, Curtenus (a derivative of Latin curtus ‘short’) + the locative suffix -acum.

Irish: English surname adopted for Ó Curnáin ‘descendant of Curnán’, an Old Irish personal name based on a diminutive of corn ‘horn’.

History: A family of this name (see 1 above) can be traced back to Athon de Courtenay, who lived in Courtenay in Loiret in the early 11th century. Renaud de Courtenay held land in Devon in the 12th century, and the family later held the title of Earls of Devon following the marriage of Hugh de Courtenay to Margaret de Bohun, granddaughter of King Edward I, in 1325.
