US Popularity:5716
Kenyon is a rather dapper boy’s name of British origin, meaning “blond.” A name particularly loved by African American communities, Kenyon hit the US charts in the 1970s. This strapping appellation dates back to the 13th century in England. Kenyon was originally an Old English surname given to the lord of a small hamlet near Liverpool named Kenien. Kenyon fell out of style by the 1980s but flourished in the early 2000s, likely due to basketball player Kenyon Martin. The y-spelling gives Kenyon a southern canyon-esque charm that blends American majesty with British antiquity, making it a dashing choice for baby.
