Kornegay name originally Gnagi?

My family is connected with the Kornegays, Duplin Cty., by marriage,and the Kornegay name became a middle name. I had many relatives with the JOHN KORNEGAY GRADY name. One is buried at Moore's Creek Battleground, near Wilmington, NC, with a monument stating that he was the first patriot to die in the war for independence (Revolutionary War). I am curious about the name, for I read somewhere that it was originally "GNAGI," perhaps Swiss, and was changed after the family settled in Duplin Cty. Any information out there on this subject?
