If you want your little one to be in touch with their Welsh heritage, we might have a name you can consider. The Welsh boy's name Bowen means "son of Owen," which comes from the traditional name Owain. Thanks to its connection to Owen, Bowen can also translate to "son of the noble one," elevating baby's confidence from the start. It can also have links to the Gaelic name O'Buadhachain, meaning "son of the victorious one" and possibly "son of the young one." This name once belonged to the Welsh leader Owain Glyndŵr, who fought in the war of independence during the Middle Ages and was the first Welshman to hold the title of Prince of Wales. With this influential name, you and baby Bowen will be able to feel closer to your ancestry than ever and honor it.
