Sometime after I arrived in Toronto I became aware of a street named Quinan Drive. As I was not aware of any reason why a street should be named after my family name I was curious as to why it was called that.
Eventually I tracked down a small community in Nova Scotia also named Quinan and on inquiry found that it had been named after a beloved Catholic priest who had served the area for many years. I think I can safely say that I am not descended from him.
I wonder if some exiled Nova Scotian town planner named the street for that small village.
