I think Guinevere Glenda's spectacular, but if hubs isn't all on board let's go a-hunting!
Gwendolyn is lovely. I prefer Gwendolen, but that's because I'm in England, in Oz Gwendolyn will probably be perfectly fine!
What I love about Gwendolyn:
- Gwen feels like a more natural nickname here.
- Gwendolen Fairfax from The Importance of Being Earnest and Gwendolen Harleth in Daniel Deronda.
- supposedly there was a pretty cool warrior queen by this name, at least according to Geoffrey of Monmouth.
- Sir Walter Scott (Scottish poet) wrote a poem about King Arthur and his illegitimate daughter by a faery lady named Guendolene.
Gwendolyn Glinda? I feel that eases up on the alliteration a bit. Gwendolyn Harriet's cute, Gwendolyn Helen is lovely as well.
Other Gwen names:
Gwendoline (the opera by Chabrier)
Gwenonwy (lily of the valley)
