Kenrick is a Welsh name commonly given to boys. As a spelling variant for Kendrick, the meaning of Kenrick is ‘greatest champion.’ Apart from being a given name, it has also been widely adopted as a surname. The surname variant of Kenrick has a Scottish root, where it is interpreted as ‘bold ruler,’ ‘Royal chieftain,’ or 'royal ruler.’ Because of the eclectic nature of the name, it is said that it might come from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) names Cyneric and Cenric, which mean ‘royal power’ and ‘bold power,’ respectively, or from the Welsh name Cynwrig, which means "chief hero." It can also be a form of the Gaelic last name Mac Eanraig, which means "son of Henry" in English. The first people named Kenrick lived in Denbighshire, where they were Lords of the Manor of Nantclwyd Woore. In the Domesday Book, which was written in 1086, the name is written as Kenricus and Kenric. Some contemporary notable personalities and institutions with the name include Kenrick Tucker, a former Australian cyclist; Kenrick Monk, an Australian swimmer; Kenrick Emanuel, a Dominican ex-player and manager; William Kenrick, an 18th-century English playwright, novelist, translator, and satirist; Kenrick Ellis, a Jamaican American footballer; Kenrick Zondervan, a former Dutch professional basketball player; Kenrick–Glennon Seminary, a private not-for-profit Roman Catholic Seminary in Shrewsbury, Missouri, USA; Kenrick Park, a tram stop in Sandwell, West Bromwich, England.
