The Irish surname Kennedy, also found in Scotland, is an anglicized form of the Gaelic name Ó Ceannéidigh ‘descendant of Ceannéidigh’, a personal name derived from ceann ‘head’ and éidigh ‘ugly’. Cinneide was the nephew of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland (1002 - 1014), and the surname O Cinneide came into being in Ireland in the 11th Century. The 'Annals of the Four Masters' record an O Cinneide, Lord of Tipperary in 1159. The first recorded Scottish name bearer appears to be Gilbert Mac Kenedi who witnessed a charter in Melrose circa 1165 - 1170. Today there are more than 170,000 bearers of the surname Kennedy living in The United States.
