1 English: habitational name from Kendal in Cumbria, recorded in 1095 as Kircabikendala ‘village with a church in the valley of the Kent river’.2 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’.
