From Wiki: Kenneth is an anglicized (Scots) form of either the Pictish name Ciniod or the Goidelic name Cináed, often thought to mean "fire-head" or "born of fire" (see Áed), but ultimately derives from a shared prototype with Kennedy.
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:41am LizGig:

Conveniently, he has an mp3 download on his website: http://www.desbishop.com/ Upper right corner,
