Wynne Family History
Wynne Name Meaning
English: variant spelling of Wynn. Welsh: variant of Gwynn. Irish (Connacht): adopted as an English equivalent of 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.
