Name Meaning

1 Irish: reduced Anglicized form of either of two Gaelic names, Ó Duibhín ‘descendant of Duibhín’, a byname meaning ‘little black one’, or Ó Daimhín ‘descendant of Daimhín’, a byname meaning ‘fawn’, ‘little stag’. These are attenuated versions of Ó Dubháin and Ó Damháin, and are the phonetic origin of Anglicizations with an internal v (as opposed to w, as in Dewan , or monosyllabic forms with an o or u) ( see Doane ).2 English and French: nickname, of literal or ironic application, from Middle English, Old French devin, divin ‘excellent’, ‘perfect’ (Latin divinus ‘divine’).
