Wystan is a boy's name that originates in Old English, dating back to the ninth century and possibly further. Saint Wigstan, also known as Saint Wystan, was the son of a King and the next heir to the throne after his father died in 839 AD. However, Saint Wystan turned his back on the kingship in favor of a short religious life until his death in 840. Wystan means "battle stone," composed of the word wig meaning "battle," and stan meaning "stone." In modern times, Wystan is known as the first name of the famous British poet W. H. Auden.
