*audaz *-winiz / auðr vinr > *Auðvin
This name derives from the reconstructed Old Norse “*Auðvin,” composed of two elements: “auðr” (prosperity, fortune, riches, wealth) plus “vinr” (friend). In turn, the name means “the wealth of friendship.” This form derives from the Ancient Germanic “*audaz *-winiz.” This name also correlates with the name “Odin,” even if considered separately, derives from the Old Norse “Óðinn,” from the Proto-Norse “*Wōdin,” meaning “furious, eager, mad (Odin).” Audun Hugleiksson (Hestakorn) († 1302) was a Norwegian nobleman at the end of the 13th-century. He was the king’s right hand, both under King Magnus Lagabøte and King Eirik Magnusson.
