The Name "Gawain"

I had thought that the name "Gawain" had something to do with "wain," a word that means "wagon" in English, but "Gawain" is actually a Welsh or Scottish name that means "little falcon" or "white falcon."

You lack something new every day!

I have a hard time keeping up with my ignorance.

Too bad. I thought "Gawain" might be Gaelic or Celtic for "Kevin."

Take heart, Kevin. Your name in Gaelic means "of noble birth."
