Meaning of the baby name HROTHWYN.

  

HROTHWYN.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "famous joy," from Old English hroð "famous" and wyn "joy."

... The name of Hengest's daughter is not given in the Hist. Brittonum.  According to Geoffrey of Monmouth she was called Rowena, which seems to be a correct Anglo-Saxon name (Hrothwyn)—though apparently it does not occur elsewhere—and preserves the alliteration of Hengest. (The Origin of the English Nation, Chadwick, 1907)
