Name Meaning

1 English: variant spelling of Wynn .2 Welsh: variant of Gwynn .3 Irish (Connacht): adopted as an English equivalent of Gaelic Ó Gaoithin ‘descendant of Gaoithín’ ( see Gahan ), because Gaelic gaoth also means ‘wind’, and the English surname Wynne was taken as being related to the English vocabulary word wind.
