    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Kieran, Conor, Declan, Dermot, Fionnuala, Aidan, Aileen, Brigid, Donovan, Eamon, Jarlath.

    shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Coinn, earlier spelled Ó Cuinn, ‘descendant of Conn’, a personal name meaning ‘wisdom’ or ‘chief’ (see O'Quinn ). This is the name of several families in Ulster and counties Clare, Longford, and Mayo.

    shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Coinne ‘descendant of Coinne’, a personal name which may be a variant of Coinneach (see also McKenzie ). This is an Ulster surname, a sept deriving from Eoghan, son of Niall Naoighiallach, from whom Tyrone is named. In most cases the Anglicized forms cannot be distinguished from sense 1 above, although final -e may have been intended as syllabic.
