Kenyon is a very engaging British surname name, the middle y giving it a kind of southwestern canyonesque undertone.
Though Kenyon appears in English records as far back as the fourteenth century and arrived in America in the seventeenth, it sounds cooler these days than the more traditional Kenneth.
Kenyon has literary ties to the prestigious journal The Kenyon Review, originating from Ohio's Kenyon College, and sports enthusiasts will recognize it as the name of basketball star Kenyon Martin (nicknamed K-Mart), the first pick of the 2000 NBA draft, who plays for the LA Clippers.
