    Name Meaning

    English: from a Middle English survival of the Old English word wine ‘friend’. There was also an Old English personal name Wine, derived from this word, which may have given rise to the surname. It is supported by the variety of surnames that evidently originated in patronymic or diminutive forms of this name, such as Winson .

    Welsh: from gwyn ‘fair, white’, also used as a personal name. See also Gwin .
