Mermaid names okay?
-The Welsh name, Morforwyn, It can be seen spelled Morvoren. It means mermaid.
I came across it and I was attracted to it. Now, I am considering it. It is quite unusual and yet, pleasant to me. There is nothing clunky, fussy, frilly, or even over the top with this name, but it still manages to remain old and different without being weird or odd or even tomboyish in appearance and in sound. I thought it would pair nicely with a brother named Seaborne (means born of the sea).

Morvoren is nice actually, but I think spelling it Morforwyn is awful - too over the top. Both are a bit of a mouthful but I love that Morvoren is feminine without being too girly & it does have a wild & watery feel to it.
Morwenna would be a lovely alternative too, meaning Waves of the Sea.
I think Seaborne is terrible & I hope you re-think that one.

I think Seaborne needs a rethink. There are some wonderful alternatives which evoke sea-like imagery and meanings.

Morvoren (spelled this way) seems special, unique and very mermaidish. That being said I love the suggestion of Morwenna, somehow more feminine and flowing.

Morvoren does seem weird and over-the-top. The suggestion of Morwenna is so much nicer.Em (stillborn 7/09) | Bo (08/09)
