It is interesting how the origins of surnames began. On the name of "KEENA" your article mentions that the name means "the descendants of Cian". Questions: What does the name of "Cian" mean?? Is it a Gaelic or Celtic name? How can one tell whether a name has Gaelic or Celtic origins? Thank you. Paul
