Gavin is a male given name of Scottish origin, derived from the Gaelic name Gobhainn or Mac Gobhann, meaning "son of the smith". It is also a variation of the medieval name Gawain, which means "God send" or "white hawk" (or falcon). The name Gavin is closely related to Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, who is known for his loyalty, bravery, and knightly perfection. The white hawk, a symbol of love and steadfastness, is associated with Sir Gawain and serves as a fitting spirit animal for the name Gavin.
