Don't know.The web page lists many and various, though not this one:

Variations of the Irvine Name
The present name of Irvine is believed to have originated in Dumfriesshire between 1124 and 1165. Irvin, Irvine, Irwin and Erwin are
identical names belonging to the same family. The wide range of variations is attributed to medieval census takers who relied on spoken
pronunciations of the name.
In the past 1500 years the original family Erinviene name has been altered into many different versions: Curwing, De Irwin, D'Irevigne,
D'Orvin, Eirryn, Erevine, Erewynis, Erin, Ervin, Ervine, Erving, Ervinge, Erwin, Erwine, Erwing, Erwyn, Eryvine, Eryvinus, Eurwing,
