Wyn Name Meaning & Origin

Wyn

Pronunciation: n/a

This Welsh favorite is a fresh choice in America, yet it sounds pleasantly old-fashioned. That probably reflects the past generations of American Wins, short for Winfield, Winfred and Winston. The Welsh name comes from gwyn ("fair, white"), the familiar root of names like Gwendolyn and Guinevere.
