? en Kitchen + Sc green

The name Kitchen probably derives from G coitcheann (m.) ‘common land, common grazing’, for which see Watson 1926, 136. Alexander is probably correct in deriving Kitchenhill, New Deer ABD from this word (1952, 79).

The NGR is for OS Pathf. Kitchen Green, which was formerly (1855) West Kitchen Green.
