Kenya is named after Mt. Kenya its highest mountain. It is the second highest mountain in Africa after Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It is a misconception that the name Kenya originated from its first president Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. And whilst the name came from Mt. Kenya, the mountain was not originally called Kenya as Kikuyu locals called it Kirinyaga (mountain of whiteness). British colonialists found it hard to pronounce hence Kiinyaa and later Kenya (Home of the Gods).
They named Kenya after there biggest mountain, and the first president was named after Kenya his named was Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. -Lexington.

Kenya is named after its tallest mountain, Mt. Kenya. Mt. Kenya is also the second highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. It is also the only place in the whole world that experiences both winter(at night) and summer (during the day) in one day. Kenya means "Abode of the Gods" but is not the mountain's first name as the Kikuyu had called it Kirinyaga (pronounced Kerenyaga) meaning "mountain of whiteness" because of the snow-tipped peak.
Kenya was created in 1920 from the British East Africa Protectorate and named after its main mountain. It was granted independence by Britain on Dec 12th 1963.

No evidence can be found for the existence of a town in Kenya called Hawaii, except for one map, which could easily have been manipulated to show a false town. With no other maps showing it, it is safe to assume that it does not exist. According to Wikipedia there is NO SUCH city or town in Kenya by the name Hawaii. Hawaii Dormitory is in Limuru Town, Kenya which is in the southern part of Kenya.
He was named after his father, Barack Obama, Sr. The name is a family name from Kenya.
Nope. Hawaii is a country by its own right, governed by the United States.
Kenya's NameKenya - a wonderful sounding word is named after a mountain of the same name. It was given by the Kikuyu people who lived around present day Mt. Kenya, which they referred to as Kirinyaga or Kerenyaga, meaning 'mountain of whiteness' because of its snow capped peak (yes, Africa does have snow capped peaks). Mt Kirinyaga, which was the main landmark became synonymous with the territory the British later claimed as their colony. However, the name Kenya arose out of the inability of the British and others to pronounce Kirinyaga correctly.When one hears the name "Kenya," there are images of the savannas, animals, safari trips, the Rift Valley, the Indian Ocean coastline and Lake Victoria but Kenya is over (2003 estimate) 30 million people of various ethnic groups (47) and backgrounds and without having met the people of Kenya, one has not seen the real, living Kenya.This place was not named after Jomo Kenyatta, which was the first ever president of Kenya.
