Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Cumbria and Hertfordshire named Corney, from Old English corn ‘grain’ or corn, a metathesized form of cron, cran ‘crane’ + ēg ‘island’. It seems possible, from the distribution of early forms, that it may also derive from a lost place in Lancashire.
