Albin Name Meaning

English, southern French, German (mainly Austrian), and Hungarian: from the personal name Albin (Latin Albinus, a derivative of albus ‘white’). The usual spelling of the French name is Aubin. The personal name was especially popular in Austria, Lombardy, and Savoy, where it absorbed the Germanic personal name Albuin (which is composed of the elements alb ‘elf’ + win ‘friend’). This was the name of the Lombard leader (died 572) who made himself king of northern Italy, and also of various saints, including a bishop of Brixen (Bressanone) in South Tyrol, whose name was confused with that of St. Aubin of Angers (see Aubin).
