Various "Killean probably derives its name from St. Killian who in the latter end of the 7th century travelled from Scotland, the place of his nativity, & preached the gospel among the eastern Franks. The denomination of the parish is also very descriptive of the local situation of the old parish church, whose walls of a crucial form are still entire, - the name being in this view compounded of Cil & Abhainn signifying River Churchyard. A small river or rivulet forms the northern boundary, which together with a tributary stream surrounds the site of the church & burial ground. Kilchenzie in Gaelic Kilchaoinich, is evidently derived from St. Kenneth to whom the church must have been dedicated as its tutelar patron. Kilchenzie was united to Killean before the year 1636. The united parish is bounded on the north by the parish of Kilcalmonell & Kilberry; on the west by the parish of Saddell & Skipness; on the south & south-west by the parish of Campbelton and on the East by the North Channel".
