The Clan Cunningham is a Scottish clan that originated in Cunninghame, the northern part of Ayrshire, Scotland. The name Cunningham derives from the Scottish word ‘Koenig,’ which translates to ‘King;’ ‘ham’ means ‘village.’ The etymology is also tied to the word ‘coineanach,’ which translates to ‘rabbit.’ The Clan’s Crest is marked by a silver unicorn head who adorns a mane and horn of gold.
