Wynne Family History
Wynne Name Meaning
Welsh: from gwyn ‘fair white’ which was also used as a personal name. See Gwynn . Irish: in Ireland this is usually the Welsh name but in Connacht it was adopted for Gaelic Ó Gaoithin ‘descendant of Gaoithín’ (see Gahan ) because Gaelic gaoth also means ‘wind’ and the English surname Wynne was taken as being related to the English vocabulary word wind. English: variant of Wynn .
