WINE.  Anglo-Saxon name, derived from Old English wine, meaning "friend."

... The need of a bishop familiar with the language of the country was most openly declared in Wessex.  Cenwealh had, after his restoration, elevated Agilbert, a Frank, educated in Ireland, to the bishopric of the West Saxons; but becoming at length weary of a foreign tongue, he established a new bishop at Winchester, in the person of Wine (Wini), an Anglo-Saxon, greatly to the displeasure of Agilbert, who returned to France, where he was raised to the see of Paris. (A History of England Under the Anglo-Saxon Kings, Lappenberg, v.1, 1845)
