    Gwen

    I really love the name Gwen. Do you think it's okay on its own or is it better as a nickname? What full-name would you suggest for Gwen? I like Gwendolyn/Gwendolen, but I'm not sure which spelling I prefer. I think Gwendolen is more authentic, right? But Gwendolyn is the more common spelling here and now. Plus, I have a superfluous Y in my name too, so it would sort of fit in.

    My full name is Gwendolyn & I hate it! I've always thought it is way to formal/length - but I get a lot of compliments. I go by Gwen which I do really like. Short, uncommon - but not too out there.

    Haha, a 'superfluous y'. I like that! Guinevere is another fantastic option for Gwen, as is Gwyneth. (Gwyn, Gwen...whatever) I do like Gwendolyn, too, though.

    I think Gwen works best as a nickname, but I also don't mind it as a standalone.

    I love Gwendolyn. I like Gwen on its own, but I prefer it as a nn for Gwendolyn.
