Darwyn

Darwyn is a variant spelling of Darwin, an English male name which comes from a surname via Old Engish given name Deorwine meaning “dear friend”, composed from Old English elements deore meaning “dear” when used as an adjective and wine (friend, lord, protector) both of which derive from a PIE root word. Darwin also has another source, as a locational name derived from the name of a river in Englad called Derwent which seems to be derived from Irish dair meaning “oak”, supposedly because there were oaks along the river.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
