Language notes 
Sources[΄kɛmnɛ]. Stressed on Kem-. .. This name has generally been referred to the kaim, called the Kem, or the Kems, a conspicuous morainic ridge which runs across the parish from east to west. In any case an original Gaelic camnach seems indicated, whatever its meaning.: Alexander 1954, 397

Ceann a' Mhuigh is mentioned online, but this is wrong.
