Gavin is a ♂ male name.
Gavin is a name of Welsh origin. It is a variant of the medieval name Gawain, which in turn derived from the Welsh names Gwalchgwn or Gwalchmai or Gwalchmei.
Gavin means “white hawk” (from Welsh “gwalch” = hawk + “gwyn/gwen” = white/fair/blessed) and “may hawk” (from Welsh “gwalch” = hawk + “mei” = may).
