Ferrin is a masculine name whose origins are thoroughly interwoven throughout Europe. As an Irish surname, Ferrin may derive from Mac Mhearáin, meaning “son of Mearán” or “swift” from mear. It’s also possible Ferrin came to Ireland around the time of the Norman Conquest, as the name has Old French and Latin roots. Donning the definitions “iron gray,” “gray-haired,” and “dressed in gray,” Ferrin is ideal for a mini Gandalf or a wise tot with an old, wizardy soul. Ferrin has forms in Spanish and Italian: Ferrín and Ferrino. With both names meaning “iron,” baby Ferrin will practically be ironclad for their big adventure.
