Meanings and history of the name Joscelyn: | Edit

I've never found out the real meaning of my name ,but one day I will.The history of my name it that I was born 2 months early so my mom did not have a name at the moment my aunt came with a book ,and she said if you and "S"and"C" it will mean something different ,and with a "Y" the at the end the meaning will change once again.That is all I know at the moment.I really wish to know the meaning might make me feel better about myself.
