CUNACENA

Translation

'of Conchenn'

Commentary

This personal name contains the commonly occuring element CUNA- 'dog, hound' and probably an early form of cenn 'head', although a final -I would be expected as is found in CIIC 342. CUNACENNI (Latin: CVNOCENNI) at Trallong in Wales (McManus 1991, 102).

This inscription is noted by Mac Neill (1909, 135) as an example of lenited and unlenited consonants both written as single characters.
