When I hear Morwenna I think of a powerful fantasy ice queen ruling her kingdom all by herself and kicking ass! Fantastic name, definitely on my short list!

Lovely, lovely name. I love a lot of Welsh names, and Morwenna is no exception. I think it sounds intriguing, looks beautiful spelled out on paper, and it gives off a very goddessy-epic, yet also playful dainty vibe.

I'm not sure how usable Morwenna would be outside of Britain/Wales-- it might sound too fairy-tale like if I use it where I live maybe, but it wouldn't be a bad thing; it'd be one of those unusual names that people would compliment and exclaim over when they hear it for the first time.

This is my daughter's name. Pronounced more-WHEN-ah. It really has to grow on Americans. No one knows what to make of it lol but we LOVE it. It's lovely and lilting and reminds us of Cornwall. Her nns are: Wenna, Morwen, Wenhen, and Wennabird.
