This name derives from Old English (Anglo-Saxon) pre 7th Century "byrum, bȳre" (Proto-Germanic: *buriz), meaning “child, son, descendant, young man, youth”. In turn the name means “the cattle sheds, dweller at the cattle byres”. Lord Byron was an English poet and a leading figure in the Romanticism. Among Byron's best-known works are the lengthy narrative poems Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and the short lyric She Walks in Beauty. He is regarded as one of the greatest British poets and remains widely read and influential.
