Origin:German
Meaning:the Gauts; flowing water; to pour
Succumbing to many twists and variations over the centuries, Joslyn is a German feminine name best defined by its adaptable, determined character. Its most original iteration is the Old French Joscelin, which simply stood as a translation of Gautzelin. It's here Joslyn stakes its claim as a descendant of the old Germanic tribe—known as the Gauts or Geats—whose sea-faring prowess and heroic deeds were forever immortalized in Beowulf. So aligned was this ancient tribe to water, that their very name came from the Old Germanic geutan, which means "to pour" or "flowing water," imbuing Josyn with the very same.
