    Haha. I do agree that Guinevere is prettier. But Gwyneth can hopefully be reclaimed!

    Wow, thanks everyone! Like I said before, I definitely prefer Gwyneth, but prefer the nickname Gwen. I think mostly because that's what's known in the states. It might give her more of a headache if her nickname was Gwyn vs. Gwen. I don't know. We still have time to decide, though.

    As for Gwendolyn/Gwendolen, it's a little too frou frou for me. And I don't find Guinevere attractive at all, sorry! Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't even hit my radar so it doesn't bother me in the least.

    Thanks again, everyone!

    My preference is Gwyneth for full version, and while I prefer Elise as a middle (prettier), I like Eloise or Elsie even better.

    I like the spelling "Gwyneth" spelling. Looks less fussy to me. Plus, I think for most people that would be the most natural way to spell it when they hear the name. I think Gwyneth Elise is lovely (even though I have a feeling that Elise will be the next popular "filler" middle name).

    I love the name Gwyneth even though there is the association with the actress. She's just one person.
