About Iwan

Go back to names list

Iwan is the Welsh variation of Ivan, which itself comes from the Hebrew name John, which means ‘Gracious is the Lord’. In Gaelic ‘J’ is pronounced ‘I’ and therefore John developed into Evan or Ivan in Wales. The forms Evan or Ivan are more popular and therefore Iwan would be an unusual, less common name.
