(Khi-nn-when)- I went to school with twins, one of which had this unique name. She did not know the origin of the name. It has always stuck with me as a distinct name.

This is probably a form of Ceinwen, pronounced something like /KAIN wen/. This is a Welsh name formed from the elements cain "lovely" and gwen "white, fair-haired, blessed."
