A name that exudes the wonder of creation, Kenese is a gender-neutral Pacific Islander name of Samoan origin, meaning “Genesis.” The term genesis is of Latin origin, from the Greek rendering of the Hebrew bĕrēʾshith. This is the first word of the first book of the Bible, translating to “the beginning.” Genesis is super trendy as a first name in the US, making the Samoan form Kenese a unique and bespoke alternative that honors your ancestry. An appellation that celebrates the miracle of life and comes steeped in faith, Kenese is a majestic choice for your little one.
