Name Meaning

English and North German: from a personal name composed of the ancient Germanic elements bald ‘bold, brave’ + wine ‘friend’, which was extremely popular among the Normans and in Flanders in the early Middle Ages. 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). In North America, this surname has absorbed Dutch forms such as Boudewijn.

Irish: surname adopted in Donegal by bearers of the Gaelic surname Ó Maolagáin (see Milligan ), due to association of Gaelic maol ‘bald, hairless’ with English bald.

History: A John Baldwin from Buckinghamshire, England, arrived in the US in 1638 and settled in Milford, CT.
