Origin of the name ALWIN.
Etymology of the name ALWIN.
Meaning of the baby name ALWIN.

  

ALWIN.  An Anglicized form of Anglo-Saxon Ælfwine (q.v.), meaning "elf friend." Also spelled Alvin, Alvyn, Elvin, and Elwin. (British Family Names, Barber, 1903).  Some authors make it a Saxon name meaning "all victorious," i.e. "all-winning." (English Surnames, Lower, 1844).

ALWIN.  Welsh name meaning "fair, handsome" and "bright, clear, lucid." (Warwickshire Place Names, Duignan, 1912)

... On this river Leven, at Balloch, was the seat of Alwin, first earl of Lennox. It is probable that he was of Celtic descent, but the records are silent as to his part in history; that he was earl at all is only proved from the charters of his son, another Alwin, and he died some time before 1217. The second Alwin was father of ten sons, one of whom founded the clan Macfarlane, famous in the annals of the district, while another was ancestor of Walter of Farlane, who married the heiress of the 6th earl of Lennox... (Encyclopedia Britannica, Chisholm, 1911)
