Wynne

Wynne is an English unisex given name which seems to be derived from Welsh gwyn meaning “blessed, fair, white” deriving from Proto-Celtic *windos (white). Wynne may also derive from another source, from Old English wine (friend, lord, protector) via Proto-Germanic *winiz (loved one, friend) derived from a PIE root word. Wynne is also a surname derived from the given name.

Origin: Proto-Celtic, Proto-Indo-European
