Variant of Kerensa, which has been 'used since the early 1970s, but more often in its variant form #Karenza#' (Dunkling, 1983). However, the name also occurs in medieval France; it belonged to a woman who composed the last two stanzas of an Occitan poem that begins #Na Carenza al bel cors avinen#, meaning "Lady Carenza of the lovely, gracious body".
