Elwyn is a boy’s name of English and Germanic origin. Meaning “elf,” “noble” and “friend,” fans of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings might easily mistake Elwyn as being a character from the books. However, this fairytale-inspired name is entirely original. Its lilting sound makes it hard to resist and is quite similar to other attractive names like Alvin, Owen, and Eowyn.
