    Middle Name for Gwendolyn

    Is Georgia as a middle name for Gwendolyn too much? I like the idea of using the nickname GiGi, in addition to the possibilities of Wendy and Gwen.

    We're also considering:

    Gwendolyn Alice
    Gwendolyn Iris
    Gwendolyn Irene
    Gwendolyn Charlotte.

    Our last name is one syllable.

    Thanks!

    I think Gwendolyn Georgia has a bit too much G, but I've never been a fan of alliteration. From your list I really like Gwendolyn Alice and Gwendolyn Charlotte.

    I love Gwendolyn! I don't like Georgia I the middle though. I love Gwendolyn Alice and Gwendolyn Iris. If you want Gigi, how about:

    Gwendolyn Grace

    Honestly, I think a 'G' name is enough to use the nickname Gigi. I know a couple that have a daughter named Gianna and they call her Gigi. I do think Gwendolyn Georgia is too much; or any alliteration of G's is too much, for that matter. It's just a very heavy letter sound.

    I like Gwendolyn Alice or Gwendolyn Iris. I suppose if you use a middle name that begins with an 'I,' then you'd have GI as the initials so that may make you feel a little more validated if you wanted to use Gigi as a nickname?

    I really like Gwendolyn, but some can still see it as old and stuffy so I'd stick with pairing it with names that are still classic, but maybe a little more spunky (i.e. Alice or Iris rather than Irene or even Charlotte is a little too goody-goody and predictable as a middle name spot already).

    What about Gwendolyn Ivy or Gwendolyn Isla? I also used to have Gwendolyn Zoe on my list.
    Mom to Nora Cathleen.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Decs/Dex). Miles (Milo). Dean. Euan. Ronan. Dexter (Dex). John (Johnny). Max. Finn. Reid.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Mary. Piper. Josephine (Josie). Iris. Margot. Sylvie. Edith (Edie).

    I agree with spunky - I suggested Gwendolyn Ruby, Gwendolyn Lucy and Gwendolyn Phoebe, but my husband vetoed!
