Kenan

If you’re looking for a Biblical name that isn’t Noah, Joshua or Adam, consider Kenan.  It also has obscure Irish origins and a Turkish pronunciation, so it’s a multicultural choice. It’s more commonly seen as a last name, but has gained minimal popularity as a first name thanks to actor Kenan Thompson.
