Origin of Warren
From Middle English warenne, from Anglo-Norman and Old Northern French warenne, from Old French guarenne, garenne, probably from a Germanic *warinne "game park", from the root *war- of Proto-Germanic *warjanÄ… (“ward off, defend against") (cf. also Old French warir, guarir, a borrowing from this Germanic root). Alternatively the Old French may have derived from a Gaulish varenna (“enclosed area"), related to varros (“post").
Two different Norman surnames, one from a Germanic given name war(in) "guard", another from a place La Varenne "the game park" in Normandy.
Middle English warenne from Old North French enclosure wer-4 in Indo-European roots
