Sent: 20 July 2011 10:48           Subject: Re: Eninni, Einon and Enniaun.

I have searched extensively for Ninny as a hypocoristic form for Einon but to no avail. Variants of Einon include : Enion, Enniaun, Enian, Inon, Inion, Eignon, Egnon, Onion, Onnyons etc. Unnion, Anyan etc. Hypocoristic forms include: Enod, Einyn; the usual pet form of Einon was Einws. There was also Eneas and Eines or Eynes. There is however one example only - of Ennynow - a Dafydd ap Griff' ab Ennynow from Caernarfon docs. This is a tenuous link BUT with further research we may establish a more substantial case for Ennyni being a form of Einon.   Deric.
