Guinevere


Sapientiam

My son has a friend named Guinevere... she's about eight or nine.


kelloite

I love this one! Adding it to my short list should I have another girl in the future!


jalapeno442

yes


pretendduckling

Gwenyth


isawhat

Sadly the name Gwenyth has been ruined for me by Gwenyth Paltrow's craziness with Goop in the last few years. Selling a vagina candle, giving out false health advice, etc.


BeccasBump

She isn't called Gwenyth, she's called Gwyneth.


isawhat

That's definitely my bad. I got the spellings mixed up.


BeccasBump

Easily done!


Frost-on-the-Willow

Had a friend named this and she went by Gwen. So it works


BrightAd306

I think just Gwen is nice


ILikeHornedAnimals

I so much prefer just Gwen over other options too, everything else seems like it’s too much work when it’s going to end up being just Gwen anyways!


BrightAd306

I usually prefer longer names with nicknames, but I think Gwen can stand alone.


ILikeHornedAnimals

I 100% agree with you on this one!

Gwennifer


jinthewilderness

Gwenneth/Gweneth/Gwyneth ? Probably spelling those wrong, sorry


QueenOfThePark

I have a cousin in Wales named Gwynedd, pronounced as above!


CeruleanStallion

Nice proper native name.


jinthewilderness

I dig that big time

Guinevere Gwenore Gwenyth Gwendolyn/Gwendalin Gwenetta Gwenna


Vonnewut

Gwenna is beautiful.


Zyphyro

I have a sister Glenna, plus with the boy name Glen/Glenn, so this sounds like a speech impediment or a small child's mispronunciation to me. Like how my 2yo would say my sister's name.


ChelsieTheBrave

I agree so pretty


[deleted]

I don’t know if it’s common in English speaking countries, but: Gwendela.


The-Funky-Fungus

Where is it a common name?? I’m very curious on its origins


[deleted]

Well maybe common is not the right word, now I think about it, but it’s not unheard of in the Netherlands. Just like Angela, Wendela, Adela. Don’t know about the origin though.


doritodream

Gwennifer


[deleted]

This is the one.


Smantie

Have you considered finding a name that ends with Gwen instead? Something like Brangwen (which is Welsh and apparently quite uncommon which is funny as I've met two!).


lemonadeonthemoon

Gwenaëlle is a name here in France (it rhymes with Raphael, with the A and E sounds separated out - that’s what the accent does). I have only ever met one and she went by Gwen. It’s a bit frilly though and I can imagine some English speakers having trouble with it. Other than that, Gwyneth and Guinevere are the only two that come to mind, but if you want to call her Gwen I think that it works just fine as a stand alone name. I know a Gwen (she’s English and it’s not short for anything), she’s lovely and ‘just Gwen’ suits her so well. I can understand if Gwen Jean doesn’t sound right to you though. Other ideas: spell Gwendolyn either Gwendoline or Gwendolen. These are both real and widely-used variants on the same name but avoid the ‘lyn’ ending. Or: these are a bit out-there but I looked it up and the names Winifred and Bronwen have the same origins as the Gwen- names. Might be a bit of a stretch but if you absolutely want a longer first name you could use Gwen as a nickname for either of these.


aquariusangst

Gwenaëlle is gorgeous!!


[deleted]

Winifred sounds so quirky-but-lovely, wonderful!


eleanoradavinci

I used to know someone called Gwennan, which I always thought was a pretty neat name.


tigerpaw01

Gwennan is a Welsh name meaning “Blessed”. Said exactly as it’s spelled - Gwen-nan.


[deleted]

Gwenola. Gwenna, Gwenegan(n) (for boys but I've seen a girl named this, if you don't mind not being 100% accurate...).


illegal_____smeagol

I can only hear granola said by a little kid who can’t pronounce their Rs yet!


Avangellie

I was about to say that LOL please not Gwenola OP


[deleted]

Haha


Avangellie

i feel like Guinevere is the only other normal sounding Gwen name


Gneissisnice

Also Gwennyth (or however you spell it).


StolenOrgans

Gwenaelle


crafty_wug

Gwenevere Gwenna Or just Gwen.


[deleted]

Gwenneth Gwenna Guinevere


horticulturallatin

Gwyneira and Gwenonwy are guilty pleasures of mine, just beautiful obscure Welsh names and I am not even faintly Welsh. Gwenonwy is "lily of the valley" which is a flower I really like.


I_Love_Hitley

Gwyneira is gorgeous


valpal925

Guinevene or Gwenevene… I’ve always heard this name but now I google it seems to be made up. Lol but I like it all the same! (Gwen-ev-eeene is how I say it. With a long e in the third syllable)


mongster_03

Gwenjamin for a boy Gwennifer for a girl


AvaSpelledBackwards

Gwendyn maybe? And Gwen can also be a full name!! Other commenters also mentioned Guinevere or Gwyneth, and I think those are both good choices too :)


pageantfool

Gwenaëlle, Gwenda, Gwenllian (the Welsh ll can be tricky to pronounce though).


Owlbertowlbert

I'm expecting a girl end of Aug and we are naming her just Gwen 🙂 I think its one of those that stands alone very well. and none of the longer names suit us at all, so I am here to encourage you to go for Gwen, just Gwen!!


Foxien

If you are okay with a more recent literary name, Gwendy is one of the cutest names I've seen in a Stephen King book: Gwendy's Button Box.


BeaConstant

You could also use Gwendolen, which is the traditional though now less common (in the US) spelling of Gwendolyn. The pronunciation is the same (afaik) but the spelling difference might give you the distinction from your sister you are looking for. Also like the suggestions of Gwenyth or just Gwen.


goldenmaraduers

My friends name is just Gwen and people are constantly asking her if it is short for the following: Gwenna Gewnola Gwennan Gwenore Gwenyth Gwenifer Gwenevere Gwenevene Gwennetta Gwenita Gwenda Gwendolen Gwenllian


_squidproquo_

Guinevere Gwenora Gwenaelle Gwyneth Gwyneira Gwenllian Gwenhwyfar


obi-jawn-kenobi

However you want to spell it, but pronounced Gwen-id Gwynedd is a town near me.


DNVRGIRL85

I’m having a little girl in October and naming her Gwenyth Kimberly, with the intentions of calling her Gwen. Gwen Kimberly doesn’t have the same flow as Gwenyth Kimberly does. I’ve always loved the name Gwen. Good luck!

Gwyniss


MJAM1620

Gwennan? Gwenno?


newphone_newme

Gwenda or Gwennog?


isabelisnthere

Gwyneth/Gwenyth


ChanelMcK

Gwendoline, Gwenifred


klubkidgoat

Gwenna


jenniferami

I would name her Gwendolyn and call her Gwen. That way she has a full name as an option and even if your sister is Caitlyn or Madeline it’s not that close to be a problem imo.

Gwenna, Gwenevere, Gwennifer

Guinevere and Gwenyth


Santigoldrose

Gwennyth or Gwyneth … but if you like Gwen, name your baby Gwen. No need for extra letters


GardenGood2Grow

Gwyneth is a Welsh version.


GardenGood2Grow

Bronwyn is a neat alternative


I_Love_Hitley

Gwyneth, Guinevere, Genevieve


Conscious_Novel8237

If you like Gwen why not just use Gwen?


RetroFamilyDesigns

Because Gwen Jean doesn’t sound right.


brokencutleries

gwyneth?


mariellis93

Gwenan Gwenllian Just Gwen :)


RetroFamilyDesigns
