Corin m
French: from Latin Quirīnus, the name of an ancient Roman divinity partly associated with the legendary figure of Romulus. It is of uncertain origin, probably connected with the Sabine word quiris or curis spear. In the early Christian period the name was borne by several saints martyred for the faith. The name is occasionally also used in the English-speaking world (where it is often regarded as a male equivalent of CORINNA (SEE Corinna)), notably by the actor Corin Redgrave (b. 1939).
