Owen: Boys Baby Name Meaning

Owen Baby Name

The meaning of the name Owen is ‘well born’, ‘born of the yew’, ‘youth’.

Owen is the Celtic/Welsh equivalent of Eugene from the Latin Eugenius, ultimately derived from the Greek ‘eugenēs’ (Ευγενιος) meaning ‘well-born’.

The Welsh first developed Ougein/Owain from the Old Irish-Gaelic Eogan (Owen is the modern Welsh form of the name).

It was the Norman-French who brought the name Eugene to England after the Conquest of 1066.

Eugenius was borne by a few early saints and four popes who helped popularize the name in earlier medieval times.

Owen is also theorized to be derived from Eòghann, an Irish name connected with an older Celtic meaning ‘born of the yew’.

The yew tree was sacred to the ancient Celts and symbolized immortality and had certain mystical power which is perhaps why we often see the word ‘youth’ associated with Owain (from the Proto-Indo-European root ‘vital force, youthful vigor’.

Owain is an illustrious name in Welsh history borne by several royal members of various kingdoms.

The most familiar Owain, however, is the one who appears in Arthurian legends – Sir Owain was one of the famed Knights of the Round Table.

Famous people who share the name Owen:

American actor Owen Wilson; African actor Owen Sejake; Owen Hargreaves, former footballer and current television pundit for BT Sport.
