Gender: Male Meaning of Gwyn: "fair, blessed" Origin of Gwyn: Welsh

The name Gwyn is a boy's name of Welsh origin meaning "fair, blessed". Gwyn and is often added to user-created lists like Welsh Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".

From the experts:

Although commonly used for boys in Wales, we fear that Gwyn, because of its similarity to Gwen and Lynn, is far too feminine to use for an American boy. Spelling Guinn may help distance it, but it still sounds like Gwen.
