Alcuin M

old english (anglo-saxon)
Ealh wine > Ealhwine

This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) name “Ealhwine”, composed of two elements: “ealh” (protection, building, house, temple, settlement) plus “wine” (friend). In turn the name means “the home of a friend, the protection of a friend”. Alcuin of York (Latin: Alcuinus; Old English: Ealhwine) or Ealhwine, (~735–804) was an English scholar, ecclesiastic, poet and teacher from York, Northumbria. He was born around 735 and became the student of Archbishop Ecgbert at York.
