Keinath Name Meaning
possibly a variant of Keinrath, from the personal name Konrad (see Konrad). (Swabian) from medieval Latin caminata (camera) ‘room with a fireplace (in medieval castles)’, which by extension came to a freestanding stone building for storage or a hostelry and hence a topographic name. In Germany a much more common form is Kemnat(h), also a common place name.
