Kilmarnock (East Ayrshire) 'Church of my dear little St Ernan'.

Cill (Scottish Gaelic) 'church';

mo (Scottish Gaelic) 'of my';

Iarnan (personal name, reputedly of the priest and uncle of St Columba);

-oc (diminutive suffix).

The name was recorded as Kelmernoke in 1299. This Ayrshire market town was once synonymous with the blue bonnet worn by the Scottish countryman.
