    I really like Gwen, but I’m not too crazy about Gwendolynz something about it seems over the top fantasy type bame to me, even though it’s pretty. I don’t really know if I’d like just Gwen as a full bame though, it seems so short…

    I like Gwendolyn, but not as much as Genevieve or Guinevere, which seem similar to me. Gwen is ok, but I don’t love it.

    I really like Gwendolyn (a lot more than Gwen), though I slightly prefer the Gwendolen spelling. It has a magical aura that always draws me to names.

    I have always loved Gwendolyn! Though I do also like the spelling pointed out as Gwendolen, I’ve never seen it that way but I really like it. I think Gwen is an adorable nn too! Love :)

    This is a tough one for me. I really love Gwen – I think it is strong, cool and feminine without being frilly. I think it works best as a nickname, though, and all the possible full names seem too much for me for real life use. Gwendolen (I prefer this spelling) is absolutely beautiful and in theory I adore it. BUT it is quite heavy and I always remember my peers using it as a ‘joke’ name in school. For this reason, it has unfortunately always been GP or MN-only for me when considering real life use. Guinevere is another option, but again I fear it is too much for a child in real life…

    I know what you mean, @Esmerelda. They do seem like a bit much for a child, though I feel like these days kids can pull off a lot of names that would have been made fun of when we were kids.
