This is a Welsh name. It means Gruffydd son of Owain.

Gruffydd ab Owain (died c. 935) was a joint king of Glywysing in Wales of the High Middle Ages along with his brother Cadwgan.[1] His other brother Morgan ruled in Gwent.

His death was recorded in the Annals of Wales.[2] Phillimore's reconstruction of the dates places the entry in AD 935.[3] Afterwards, his brother Cadwgan seems to have ruled Glywysing alone until his death c. 951.
