CUNNANE Family History

This interesting and unusual surname is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O' Cunin, which is derived from the Gaelic "coinin", meaning rabbit. The surname is found almost exclusively in North Connacht, and it is basically the same as the Gaelic "O' Cuinneain", which has been Anglicized as Kinnane and Kinane; this name has the same meaning, and is found mainly in north Tipperary, and has the occasional variants of Quinane and Guinnane. Today, the name is mainly found in County Roscommon and East Mayo. One Ellen Cunnane aged eighteen years was one of the many Irish emigrants to America between the years 1846 - 1851, as a result of the Great Famine of 1845 - 1846...
