selwynne M

old english (anglo-saxon)
SEL WYN

This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) “selwyn”, composed of two elements: “Sel” (castle, house) plus “wyn” (friend), which means “friend in the castle, friend in the house”. The name Selwyn later became an English surname, after the Norman Conquest of 1066 introduced the concept of family names to England. Its renewed popularity as a given name in England in the 19th century was largely due to the fame of Bishop George Augustus Selwyn.
