Gavin is the late medieval form of Lowland Scotland and the Old English Welsh masculine name Gawain (although its etymology is not entirely certain). Gawain, in turn, is generally associated with the ancient Celtic Gwalchgwyn, from the Welsh elements "Gwalch", meaning "falcon" and "Gwyn", meaning "white, fair". Gawain is best remembered as Sir Gawain, one of the notable Knights of the Round Table in Arthurian legends. It was said that Gawain's power grew as the sun rose in the sky, and diminished as the sun set. The name was made most famous by a long medieval poem written in a dialect of some Middle English in the ۱۴th century (author unknown) called "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" (or "Sir Gawayn and la Grene Knyӡt" in its variation Intermediate English). Sir Gawain is idealized as the perfect gentleman; the embodiment of all that is excellent. He is handsome, loyal, strong, brave, and chivalrous. See the literary references below for more details. Although Gawain/Gavin is essentially an old Celtic name, it was more or less forgotten by the ۱۸th century. Fortunately, this "white sparrow hawk" is flying again (after a ۲۰th century revival). He was first revived in England and Ireland, but today Sir Gavin is more popular in the United States and Canada. it was more or less forgotten by the ۱۸th century.
