It was the personal name of the Crusader who in 1100 became the first Christian king of Jerusalem, and of four more Crusader kings of Jerusalem. It was also borne by Baldwin , Count of Flanders ( 1172–1205 ), leader of the Fourth Crusade, who became first Latin Emperor of Constantinople ( 1204 ). As an American surname it has absorbed Dutch spellings such as Boudewijn.2 Irish: surname adopted in Donegal by bearers of the Gaelic name Ó Maolagáin ( see Milligan ), due to association of Gaelic maol ‘bald’, ‘hairless’ with English bald.
