Warren - Meaning of Warren

What does Warren mean?

[ 2 syll. war-ren, wa-rr-en ] The baby boy name Warren is pronounced as WAORRehN †. Warren is primarily used in English and it is of Old French origin. The first name is derived from an English family name which is itself from a Normandy place name La Varenne, of the element 'garenne' (meaning game park, game reserve). It could have been influenced by the Old German name Warin which is of the element 'warin' (Warni, Warini, to protect) referring to a Germanic tribe, and therefore is related to the name Werner. The first name saw a revival in the 19th century, especially in the USA, where it has sometimes been bestowed in tribute to Joseph Warren (1741-1775), the American doctor, soldier, and hero of the American Revolution.
