Meaning & History
Low German diminutive of Kunigunde. However, there exists another possible meaning for this name: some speculate that it may actually mean "little child". In that case, it comes from older Low German kindeken, which then transformed into kinneken over time and then ultimately into künneke. However, the first mentioned origin (Kunigunde) is the most likely.
