    Arwen?

    I saw Arwen on a list of names today and for some reason it stood out. I can't decide if I like it or not...

    Can I get some thoughts on Arwen?

    I like it. Arwen kind of fits in with Rowan, Owen, Elowen. It definitely sounds a little medieval, like a character from Game of Thrones.

    I really like it It probably sounds familiar because it's one of the names of the lead females in The Lord of the Rings.

    We very nearly named Mila Arwen instead (you can see we picked a similar middle in the end). The reason we didn't is because we are New Zealanders and in 2010 there was way too much LOTR hype - *everyone* immediately said LOTR as soon as we mentioned the name, and that's not why we liked it.
    Still think it's beautiful, though - and if you picked it today I think there'd be less fuss about the books/movie.
