While Gwen may have originated as a short form of Gwendolen, these days, it usually stands on its own. Rocker Gwen Stefani has given it a shot of cool, and parents are choosing it as a standalone more and more often -- it was one of the 2013 list's fastest-rising names. Might also be short for Guinevere or Gwendolyn.
