Wein Name Meaning
German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German win, German Wein ‘wine’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a wine merchant or producer, or perhaps for a tavern keeper. As a Jewish name it may also be of ornamental origin. German: from a short form of any of the various Germanic compound personal names beginning with the element wini ‘friend’, such as Winifrid or Winimar. German: altered spelling of Wien.
