Ancient Germanic cognate of Godwine. In English-speaking countries, the use of Godwin as a given name is these days often inspired by the English patronymic surname Godwin, which was derived from the aforementioned Anglo-Saxon personal name Godwine.A known bearer of this given name was the Austrian-Hungarian (but of Polish descent) flying ace Godwin von Brumowski (1889-1936).
