Name Meaning

English:1. regional name from the county of Cornwall, which is named with the Old English tribal name Cornwealas. This is from Kernow (the term that the Cornish used to refer to themselves, a word of uncertain etymology, perhaps connected with a Celtic element meaning ‘horn’, ‘headland’), + Old English wealas ‘strangers’, ‘foreigners’, the term used by the Anglo-Saxons for Britishspeaking people. 2. variant of Cornwell .
