SEVIN Family History

Recorded in several forms including Severn, Severns, Seven, Sevin, Sivern, Sivorn, and others, this is an English and Welsh medieval surname. It is residential and describes a person who lived or worked on the River Severn, which flows from Wales through much of West England, to the Bristol Channel. It is first recorded as a river name in the 2nd century a.d as "Sabrina". The original meaning is uncertain, but it may have been "slow moving", and is held to be identical to the old name of the river Lee in County Cork, Ireland, which was called "Sabrann".
