Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:The first appearance of light, daybreak
Dwan is a striking variation of the lyrical girl's name Dawn. With the meaning of "the first appearance of light" or "daybreak," it's a whimsical appellation for the little one you're starting a whole new journey with. Dawn is the Old English variation of the Latin name Aurora and holds a similarly dreamy, fairytale-worthy feel. In media, Dwan is probably most well known as the name of one of the leads in the 1976 remake of King Kong, portrayed by Jessica Lange.
