    Question Wendy - is there an alternative?

    Hi Berries!

    Is there a nice alternative or long form of Wendy besides Guinevere?
    I've always like it for the literature connection as I do Winnie (Tuck Everlasting) but I suppose if its a middle name it won't matter anyway

    Elsa: Mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own

    Ronan: Spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous.

    Mary Belle - Conrad - Elaina/Elena? - Jonas

    Gwendolen seems like the best one, it's even got the d. gWENDolen. Or Gwendolyn!

    Then there's all the other -wen names; Anwen, Arwen, Elowen, Bronwen, Branwen, Lowenna, Morwenna, Gwennan, Gwenno, Blodwen, Olwen, Gwenllian, Eirwen, Eirawen, Lilwen... or just Wendy which is lovely all on its own.

    I was about to suggest Gwendolen/Gwendolyn too. But Wendy doesn't really have a long form as such, as it was a name invented for the Peter Pan story anyway.

    If you're averse to using Wendy as a full name, how about something like Arwen Diana nn Wendy?

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Winifred, like Wendy in The Shining. That was my first thought. All of the -wen options like Rowen & Arwen and all of the Gwen names too. Edwina & Winona could be possibilities. I think Winifred is the best option though!
