Meaning:moss town
There is much to be said for the earthy masculine name Mostyn. Though it may not spark obvious wonder in those who behold it first, Mostyn reveals itself in time to be an essential little entity in any tight-knit setting. Welsh in origin, Mostyn, of course, translates as "moss town," at once highlighting the necessity of the durable little plant. For in the wild, moss is the very thing that keeps soil intact, nourishing complex plants in the process and gathering the water necessary for blooming entire ecosystems. So you see, a moss town is a very lucrative place indeed, and little Mostyn may find themselves so often the glue that keeps all bonds intact.
