Kinman Name Meaning

English: either an occupational name for a cowherd, from Middle English kineman ‘cattle man’ (not recorded except as a surname), or more probably from a Middle English survival of the Old English personal name Cynemann ‘royal man’, i.e. the king’s man. Scottish: according to Black, a reduced form of Kininmonth, a habitational name from either of two places so named in Fife; alternatively, it may be a variant of Kinmont, a habitational name from a place named Kinmont, in Annandale in the Borders. Jewish (Ashkenazic): see Kin. Altered spelling of German Kinmann (see Kuehn).
