      JRS: "Owen" can be treated as the same name as "Evan", or as a Welsh
      form of the names Eugene or John.

      There are also several early Western Saints named "Owen":

      St. Owen, Archbishop, in Rouen, Normandy (Aug. 24 OS).

      St. Owen, hermit, near Lichfield, England (March 3).

      St. Owen [Hywin] of Averdaron (Jan. 6).

      Translation of relics (June 7).

      St. Owen of Lastingham, disciple of St. Etheldreda (March 4).

      Tr. of relics (May 5).

      Then, there is St. EVAN, hermit of Ayrshire in Scotland (Aug. 18).

      There is St. EVANGELUS, hieromartyr, at Tomi (Costanza) Romania (July
      7).
