Name Meaning

Spanish (Galván): from a medieval personal name. This is in origin the Latin name Galbanus (a derivative of the Roman family name Galba, of uncertain origin). However, it was used in a number of medieval romances as an equivalent of the Celtic name Gawain ( see Gavin ), and it is probably this association that was mainly responsible for its popularity in the Middle Ages.
