Arwel Origin and Meaning

The name Arwel is a boy's name meaning "prominent".

Arwel is well-known in Wales from figures such as composers Arwel Hughes and Owain Arwel Hughes, and Rugby players Arwel Thomas and Arwel Robson — though not especially popular for baby boys today. It has never been recorded in the American baby name charts, but would be an accessible Welsh heritage choice.
