One of the three boys carrying fishing poles whom Quentin encounters in The Sound and the Fury is named "Kenny" (122). This is one of the two who are not; Quentin thinks of them as "the first," "the second" and "the third" (117 etc.) and they can be distinguished from each other. This "second" boy, for example, imagines catching the trout and exchanging it for a "horse and wagon" (117) - Quentin refers to him as "the one that thought the horse and wagon back there at the bridge" (137), and he is consistently the most contrary of the three.
