English, French, and German: from the personal name Albin (from Latin Albinus, a derivative of albus ‘white’). In England this is generally a variant of Alban . The usual spelling of the French name is Aubin . The personal name was especially popular in Austria, Lombardy, and Savoy, where it absorbed the ancient Germanic name Albuin (which is composed of the elements alb ‘elf’ + win ‘friend’; compare Alvin ). This was the name of the Lombard leader (died 572) who made himself king of northern Italy, and also of various Christian saints, including a bishop of Brixen (Bressanone) in South Tyrol.
Galician (Albín): habitational name from any of the four places called Albín in Galicia (Spain), from Latin (villa) Albini.
