Thank you all for your feedback. I showed it to my husband and he has given in (for now at least, lol)
@alliecat, I sort of pronounce it as a cross between the two, I think that's partially an Australian accent thing. I don't mind either pronunciation really but even looking online I have seen that lot of people pronounce it wrong. Some people even say it with a hard G or 'Gun' at the beginningThe 3 Princesses in my life...

It's clear from everyone's responses that 'I win'. Not that it's about winning or I would say that to my husband.(And Timothy if you're stalking me on Nameberry again it's your own fault that you're seeing this!)
I think all this thinking time because I'm on bedrest is doing me more harm than good in some ways. It's also probably why I'm wide awake and on Nameberry at 3.30am...The 3 Princesses in my life...

I agree with the poster who said that Gwenevere looks like you don't know how to spell it.
If I saw that spelling I'd think....why didn't they look up the name they used before they gave it?
I can't imagine it causing all that much trouble, especially if she regularly goes by Gwen.
Honestly, those who don't know how to spell it won't spell it right even if it's Gwenevere, so why cater to the ignorant?
As for pronunciation, I can't think of another way to pronounce Guinevere....I guess ghin-uh-vere? like Guinness? But that's an easy correction and I think most people have heard of Arthur and Guinevere.Top Names: Benedict Calvin & Noelle Geneva
