Gwenfrewi -Welsh, meaning "blessed peace". The middle syllable should be emphasized when pronounced. The name Winnifred comes from Gwenfrewi, as this is what St. Winnifred's name would have been in Welsh.
|St. Winnifred's Well|
Although my Wilson ancestors are from Flintshire, Wales, where
this well is located, my grandmother Winnifred's ancestors are not.
Iniya- Malayalam, meaning "sweet". Malayalam is a language spoken in Kerala, India (the southwestern tip of the country) by about 33 million people. It is a Dravidic tongue and probably developed from Middle Tamil in the 6th century, though perhaps it became a separate language sooner than that.
Celipe -Spanish, a variant of Felipe, which comes from the Greek Philippos, which is made from 'philos' meaning "friend or lover" and 'hippos' meaning 'horses', so that it means 'friend of horses' or 'lover of horses'.
Drury - Old English meaning "treasure" or " a gift" or "a love token". In Old French it came from drue "a concubine". It may be German from 'drut" or "druyt" meaning "faithful" or from "draut" meaning "dear". "Drud", which is German and "drut" which is French both mean 'friend'. But as a first name it may have come into use as a surname as first name, since Drury is an English surname.
Ehud - Hebrew, meaning "united".
