Gavin Genealogy & History

Gavin is an English, Welsh, and Irish name. In England and Wales, it was derived from the old Celtic personal name Gawaine, itself derived from the word gwalchmai, meaning battle hawk. Gawaine is also one of King Arthur�s knights. In Ireland, the name is sometimes an anglicization of the Gaelic surname O� Gabhain, which has uncertain derivation but is possibly taken from a word meaning danger or want. Gavin family history is first recorded with one Emma Gawyn (an alternate spelling), who lived in Yorkshire in 1379; early Gavins were also found in County Mayo, Ireland. Gavin genealogy includes the extremely decorated Lieutenant General James Gavin.
