With its modern sound, Ashwin can be a lively choice for your little boy or girl. It's a variant of Ashvin and Aśvin, which is a well-known spiritual month in the Hindu calendar. However, in Sanskrit, it translates to “possessed of horses,” making Ashwin one wild and extraordinary name. There's also a second meaning of Ashwin, which comes from the British words “ash-tree” and “joy” or “friend,” giving baby a little edge. Historically, Ashwin would be a regal surname, and in medieval times it marked those who lived beyond the battles of the Norman Conquest.
