WIND Family HistoryRecorded in several spelling forms including Waind, Wind, Wynd, Wain and Wean, this is an English topographical or nickname surname. It derives from the Pre 7th century Olde English "gewind", and describes either a person who lived by a particulary windy place or a "winding" road. As a medieval nickname surname it was probably given to a fast runner or messenger, one who was "as speedy as the wind". It is not always easy to comprehend how surnames and especially their spellings developed, but accents were highly localised to the point where adjoining villages often spoke almost different languages.
