Whilst the origin of this unusual name, along with Bweengduff, is unclear, they are almost certainly related to the nearby settlement of Bweeng (Ir. Na Boinn) and the townlands of Beennamweel East and West. One possibility is that Boinn is a corruption of Ir. muing, ‘rushy area’, and this explanation would fit well with its application to an upland areas of moderate height in Bweeng Little and Bweengduff.
