Meaning of the baby name MARVIN.

  

MARVIN.  The same as Celtic Mervyn (q.v.), meaning "sea hill."  Usage:  America, England.
    Marvin Pentz Gaye, Jr. (d. 1984), was an American musician, singer, and songwriter.  Hank Brian Marvin, an English guitarist. (Wiki)

    Marvin, Mervin, Mirfin, Mervyn, Murfin.óBapt. "the son of Merfin" or "Mervyn" (Yong, iii. 154-6).  The Brittany form of this famous name was Merlin.  Miss Yonge says Mervyn is still in use in Wales as a font-name.  The story of "Mervyn Clytheroe" has made the name familiar to modern ears; cf. Dolphin, Turpin, or Halpin, the suffix in all three cases being -fin.  The Yorkshire form of the surname to-day is Murfin or Mirfin, practically the same as Mirfyn in the 14th century. (A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, Bardsley, 1901).
