Gladwyn is a name of English origin. Traditionally intended for boys, it’s historically known to stem from the name Gladwin, a more modern version of Glædwine, which means “bright,” “cheerful,” or “glad” and owes its additional meaning of “lighthearted friend” to the Old English element wine. Gladwyn also appears in Baron Gladwyn, a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, created in honor of illustrious British diplomat Gladwyn Jebb. The title is no longer in use, but your tiny tot will take pride in their name and all it's known for nonetheless.
