Cain Genealogy & History

The surname Cain has three main theories as to its origin, and none of them are related to the biblical figure. The first is from Old French, as a nickname for a tall, thin man, or for someone working with or living near reeds; cane is both Middle English and Old French for cane or reed. The second is Norman, from the town of Caen in Normandy. Lastly, Caine might be Welsh, from the given name Keina, a derivative of the Welsh cain, meaning beautiful. Caine family history begins with Godrey Kein in the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk. Cain genealogy includes 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain and British actor Michael Caine.
