Eynon Name Meaning

Welsh: from the personal name Einion, which used to be extremely common in Wales. It is probably ultimately derived from the Latin personal name Anmianus, but no doubt enjoyed its wide popularity as a result of folk etymological associations with Welsh einion ‘anvil’ and/or uniawn ‘upright’, ‘just’.
