ERWIN Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon, Scottish and Irish origin. Firstly, it may originate from the Middle English personal name Irwyn, Erwyn and Everwyn, from the old English pre 7th Century personal name "Eoforwine", composed of the elements "eofor" meaning wild boar plus "wine" friend. "Eueruinus" (without surname) appears in the 1086 Domesday Book of Norfolk. The second source is Scottish and is locational from Irvine in Strathclyde or from a Celtic river name, with the component elements being the Welsh "ir" or "yr" meaning fresh or green plus "afon" water. The third source is Irish and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O' hEireamhoin" meaning "descendant of Eireamhan", a personal name of uncertain origin...
