Name Meaning

English: metonymic occupational name for a carter or cartwright, from Middle English wain ‘cart’, ‘wagon’ (Old English wægen). Occasionally it may have been a habitational name for someone who lived at a house distinguished with this sign, probably from the constellation of the Plow, known in the Middle Ages as Charles's Wain, the reference being to Charlemagne.
