The name MARWIN is of Old German origin (early medieval times).
It consists of two parts: MAR and WIN.
MAR stems from the Old German word 'mari', meaning 'famous' or 'great'.
It can be found in other German names such as 'INGMAR' or 'OTTMAR'.
WIN stems from the Old German word 'wini', meaning 'friend'.
It can be found in other German names such as 'ERWIN' or 'WINFRIED'.
Thus, the name MARWIN translates into 'famous friend' or 'great friend'.

The relation to the Welsh name MARVIN is not sure. It is assumed that the German name MARWIN was introduced by the Anglo-Saxons to Wales where the name experienced a change into 'MERFYN'.
