From the Welsh adjective cethin meaning "ruddy, dark, swarthy, dusky."

In the Middle Ages it was originally used as an epithet (byname) after a personal name, most likely to describe a person as "swarthy" or "ruddy." One of the most famous examples is Rhys Gethin (d.c.1405), the notable captain of the great Welsh prince Owain Glyndwr.
