Thanks for defining it as early Puritan. I have a 4th great grandma named Kerenhappuch, she used Carey/Cara for short.

Sounds like a slave name. I could imagine some Southern plantation owner having three black female slaves named Jemima, Keziah, and Keren-Happuch.

KeReN kuf-resh-nun is a homonym with a lot of meaning: foundation, corner, horn, ray / beam of light

HaFuKH heh-peh-vav(oo)-khaf also has many meanings, but all related to reverse, turn over / turn back

The meanings that make sense in combination are: ray of light + solstice (the shortest day when days begin to get longer, or the longest day when they begin to get shorter). Keren-happuch was probably born on the day of a solstice. Keren-happuch may be a cool name, but its definitely not kohl.

"Early Puritan families often had daughters named Jemima, Keziah, and Karen-happuch, after Job's three daughters mentioned in Job 42:14. Jemima and Keziah remained popular, although Karen-happuch never really caught on."

It's fun to say.

I'm sorry, but this name is just an oddity to me. Anyone who seriously uses this as a first name, is off their perch on something, in my opinion, to name a poor child this abomination. I apologise in advance if anyone is called this and is offended. :)

I generally try to have a very open mind regarding names (especially foreign ones), but I'm sorry, this one is just plain - well, I might almost say weird. I have no particular fondness for the way it sounds, and I'm afraid that even I don't understand what "horn of eyeshadow" is supposed to signify.

Um... What in the world does the meaning mean? "Horn of eyeshadow?"

I wouldn't be sure, but perhaps hollowed-out animal horns were used as containers to store things like eyeshadow and cosmetics. It seems the most likely explanation to me.

For some, very odd reason. I like this name!

Horn of eyeshadow? Well, I guess I can see just Keren, or just Happuch, as pretty suitable modern names. :]

Created from 2 elements:
"Keren" meaning "horn" and "happuch" meaning "eye-shadow" or "face paint".

Somehow I don't see this name catching on any time soon.
