I love this name! It's really cool and pretty :)
Anyhow, a brief internet search tells me that Conwenna was the name of two mothers of two early British kings and it apparently means holy(or shining) wolf/hound or white dog/white warrior..
So, apart from this poem Conwenna seems to have very nice associations/meanings. Unless one hates dog, in this case maybe not so much ;)
