Meaning of the Name Yoselin

Yoselin is the Spanish version of the name Jocelyn. The name Jocelyn originates from the French pronunciation of the Germanic term Gautzelin. This term referred to the Northern Germanic tribe called the Gauts. The Gauts were one of the major progenitors of the Swedes, and they inhabited Götaland. Alternatively, some etymologists believe that Jocelyn derives from the Celtic diminutive jodoc (meaning “chief” or “lord”).

This would make the name a cognate of the Germanic term gauzlin (which went on to produce the surnames Gozlin and Gosling). Either way, the Yoselin spelling is the most common variation in Latin America. Yoselin originates from the Germanic word Gautzelin (meaning “descendant of the Gauts”). In antiquity, the symbol of the Gauts was the Germanic rune.
