As an example, on the street yesterday I found a Winter wren.
Their son, wren, was born on March 9, 2010, shortly after noon.
With every breath, wren made a cooing noise, but Jones looked online and saw that lots of newborns make funny sounds.
Old English wrenna, metathesis variation of earlier werna, a West Germanic word of uncertain origin. Cf. Icelandic rindill, Old High German wrendo, wrendilo "wren." The bird's name in other languages usually denotes "royalty" (cf. Latin regulus), in reference to its golden crest.
