Does anyone know anything about the name "Kerwin"? It is a masculine name that hasn't been in the top 1,000 American boy names since 1963. For perspective, this site's baby naming data states that "Mary" and "Deborah" were apparently more popular boys' names than "Kerwin". Anyways, it's my father's name. He always claimed that his mother found it in a cheap romance novel, and the meaning he was given (from who, I don't know) was "little jet black one". The most similar name I can find on this site is "Coerwyn" (I don't think I spelled that right). Does anyone else know something about this odd name?
