URWIN Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon, Scottish and Irish origin from the Middle English (1200 - 1500) given name "Irwyn, Erwyn, Erwyn, Everwyn", from the Old English pre 7th Century "Eoforwine", composed of the elements "eofor", wild boar, and "wine", friend. The second source is Scottish, and is locational from either Irvine in Strathclyde, or from Irving in Dumfriesshire. The placenames are derived from a Celtic river name, probably composed of elements cognate with the Welsh "ir, yr", green, fresh and "afon", water.
