Kenney Family Crest

The Irish and Scottish surname Kenney is an anglicized form of the Gaelic name Ó Coinnigh meaning “descendant of Coinneach,” an Old Irish personal name equivalent to Scottish Kenneth. This was borne by a 6th-century monk and saint who gave his name to the town of Kilkenny ‘church of Coinneach.’ In Ireland the name is most frequently found in the western counties of Galway, Mayo and Roscommon. The name is first recorded in the New World in 1635 when Edmund Kenny arrived in Virginia. Today there are approximately 27,000 bearers of the name Kenney living in the US
