    combination of Gwendolyn and Myrtle

    What are some ideas for combining Gwendolyn and Myrtle into a single name? Trying to honor 2 grandmothers at once... Thanks in advance!

    What about Merewen/Merewyn (meh-reh-win) or Morwenna? They kind of have the "myr" sound from Myrtle and the "wen" from Gwendolyn. I believe both are Welsh. There's also Marilyn, but that's rather dated and the connection to Marilyn Monroe is still pretty strong to me.

    Wendell?

    The wen from Gwendolyn and Le from Myrtle.

    I second the suggestion of Morwenna.

    Madelyn is a stretch, but a possibility. Magdalen? Mandolin? Milan?

    Thank you! I just came across Wendell and will run Morwenna by my husband, too! I'm struggling a bit because we're planning to use the 1st name Ann and our last name ends in -n, and a lot of middle name options also have the ending -n sound which don't always seem to flow well.
