Rowen is a gender-neutral name of Irish and Scottish origins, acting as a variant of Rowan. This name derives from the Irish Ruadhán, meaning “little redhead” and the English Rowe, meaning "row." A strong surname, Rowen is also as beloved in nature as it is in folklore. The Rowen tree was thought to protect against witchcraft and enchantment, and today grows as a deciduous tree that fruits red berries in the autumn. Celebrities have also grown fond of Rowan, with actor Brooke Shields giving the name to her daughter in 2003. A name that’s so vividly associated with red could be perfect for a little red-haired baby, or to pay tribute to your favorite color or fiery personality. Whatever your preference, Rowen is undoubtedly a red-hot choice.
