    Name Meaning

    Scottish and Irish: variant of Irvine .

    English: from the Middle English personal name Everwin, Erwin, perhaps from Old English Eoforwine (eofor ‘boar’ + wine ‘friend’) but mostly from an Old French form of the cognate ancient Germanic name Everwin, or from a different ancient Germanic name, Herewin, with loss of initial H- (first element hari, heri ‘army’).

    German: from the personal name Erwin, from Herwin, a compound of Old High German heri ‘army’ + wini ‘friend’.
