Scottish: from a pet form of Rabb. English: from the Norman personal name Radbode, Rabbode, composed of the Germanic elements rad ‘counsel’, ‘advice’ + bodo, boto ‘messenger’, ‘lord’. Irish: mistranslation of Gaelic Ó Coinín, which is actually a variant of Ó Conáin or Ó Cuineáin (see Cunneen), as if it were from coinín ‘rabbit’, although in fact it is from a diminutive of cano ‘hound’, ‘wolf’.
