Meanings and history of the name Auden

A cognate of Edwin, both names are derived from the Old English elements ead " rich" and wine "friend".

Sometimes mistakenly attributed to the Norse god Odin (O.N. Oðinn), but Odin's roots are from the Proto-Germanic name Wuotan (Wōdanaz), meaning " madness, manic inspiration." Ødin is an Old Norse variant of Auden, but similarities aside, Ødin is not actually related to Odin.
