    Question Gwyneira - Is it "real"?

    I have been searching for such a long time to find a name that could use the nickname Winnie. But alas Winola is the only one I found that I would consider using and I didn't truly love it. So I found Gwyneira the other day and I am wondering is it a real name? Could I drop the G and have Wyneira. I am guessing its pronounced Gwyn-IRA or Gwyn-AYRA. I am not thinking for a first name, but as a middle? - That is if its a legitimate name.

    Yes, Gwyneira is a "real" name. It is Welsh, and means "white snow". My sources say it can be pronounced gwen-AY-ruh and gwen-EE-rah.

    It is a real name, I think it is lovely.

    What about Winnifred (Winnie OR Freddie, so cute!), Ceridwen, Winona, Winter, Anwen, Rowan, Branwen, or maybe even Dwyn? Lots of awesome Welsh options, actually

    I only really like Rowan (which is too much like Ronan) or Winter and both are a bit too trendy. There's Winsome, Winnipeg, Kaywinnet and Winslow... but ehhh :/
