Davin comes from an Irish and French surname which derives from two separate sources. As an Irish surname, it’s an anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Dubháin meaning “descendant of Dubhán”, the latter the diminutive form of dubh “black, dark”, or an anglicized form of Gaelic surname Ó Damháin meaning “descendant of Damhán”, the latter meaning “fawn” from Gaelic damh (stag, ox); which would make it variant spelling of Devin. As a French surname, it’s a pet form of David, a Hebrew given name meaning “beloved”.
