"I have the name Kenan an I am from Pakistan. It is popularly agreed that this is a Turkish name. I've faced many problems because people don't know how to pronounce it here or abroad. They keep on saying key-naan or kaa-naan and stuff but I guess they just have to be corrected...though it can be a bit of a hassle at times. :) I like this name anyway" May. 7, 2009:
"This my name. Yes people pronounce it wrong all the time. They will often sound it out as Kee-Nan(with the Nan sounding like Ran). Kenan is actually pronounced Ki-Narn with a silent R and the I makes more of a quick E sound.
I have not met anyone else with this name. My Father was Turkish so I have always just thought it originated from there." Jul. 15, 2005:
