Recently there was a post on another message board that asked for the meaning of people's full names. I know that my first name means laurel, but when asked for my second name's meaning I had no idea. The name in question (Cooney) is an anglicised version of the Irish surname O'Cuana, which means 'grandson of Cuana' or 'descendent of Cuana'. The name originated in County Tyrone in Northern Ireland and then travelled south to North Connaught.
What I wanted to know is, does anybody know the meaning of the name Cuana? If you can provide me with any relevant information on this, please do not hesitate to e-mail or reply to this message.
