wystan M

old english (anglo-saxon)
wīg stān > WIGSTAN

This name derives from the Old High German name “Wigstan”, composed of two elements: “wīg” (fight, battle) plus “stān” (stone). In turn the name means “the fighter as strong as the stone, the stone of the battle”. Wigstan († ~840), also known as Saint Wystan, was the son of Wigmund of Mercia and Ælfflæd, daughter of King Ceolwulf I of Mercia.
