Kon Family History
Kon Name Meaning
Japanese (rare in Japan): the most usual rendering is ‘gold’; bearers are most likely descended from immigrants named Kim, from the ancient Korean Shilla kingdom. Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): one of the many forms of Cohen. Polish (Kon): from kon ‘horse’, hence a metonymic occupational name for someone who bred or cared for horses or a nickname for someone thought to resemble a horse.
