Swain is a masculine name meaning "boy" and is directly related to the classic Old Norse name Sven. Sven also derives from the ancient Swedish tribe, the Sviars or Swedes, with both countries laying claim to the name. Even William Shakespeare was a fan of Swain, using the name as a noun in his works The Two Gentlemen of Verona and King Henry VI. No matter what age you both reach, you will always see Swain as the youthful you and forever as your little "boy."
