The village is located on the right bank of the river Nitra, approximately in the middle between the towns of Partizánske and Topoľčany. Northwest the terrain curves into the Bojice hillside, following the mountain range of Považský Inovec. To the south and east, behind the river Nitra, rises the mountain range of Tribeč.
The name is derived from a duty to guard a local ford at early morning. Slovak: chyn-, chyniť – to pretend, to lie (here also ambush, the word is preserved e.g. in Serbian as hiniti), ran-, raný, ranný – early, morning.
In historical records, the village was first mentioned in 1243.
