    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin, mostly in Cornwall): from the Old French personal name Ev(e)rin, Eurin, either a pet form of ancient Germanic names in Ever- (from the Germanic word for ‘boar’), such as Everard and Everwin (see Erwin ), or an alternative pronunciation of Everwin as /ju:rin/. In Cornwall this name would easily have been confused with the Breton personal name and surname in 2 below.

    Cornish (of Breton origin) and Welsh: from the Breton and Welsh personal name Ur(i)en (ultimately from British Celtic ōrbo- perhaps ‘orphan, heir’ + gen- ‘born’). There is evidence for use of the Breton personal name in at least one Anglo-Norman family in Cheshire but in Cornwall it belonged initially, at least, to 16th-century Breton migrants, some of whom also bore it as a surname.

    Norwegian: habitational name from any of numerous farmsteads, so named from the definite singular form of ur, from Old Norse urth ‘scree, rock-strewn slope’.
