The name Cowan is probably of Scottish origin, a reduced form of the name McCowan. It is also possibly of Irish and Gaelic origin. It is thought to mean "hollow in the hill". It is a popular place name.

The name Coe is a variant form of the name Cowan. Some of the other baby names which sound similar to Cowan include the names Coyan, Con, Conn and Conway. While Cowan is very rare as a male first name, it is more popular as a surname.

In freemasonry, the term takes on special meaning and refers to a person who is not a Freemason. It could also refer to an individual who, although does the work of a mason, has not yet been apprenticed to the trade.
