Name Meaning

1 Scottish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cionaodha or Mac Cionaoith ‘son of Cionaodh’, a personal name which is probably composed of the elements cion ‘respect’, ‘affection’ + Aodh, a Gaelic personal name, originally the name of the Celtic god of fire. The personal name thus probably means ‘beloved of Aodh’.2 Northern Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Coinnigh ‘son of Coinneach’, an Old Irish personal name equivalent to Scottish Kenneth . Compare Kenny . Also the Scottish name as in 1.
