[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] is just She’s been my #1 girl since circa 2001 when I heard the name in a Death [name_m]Cab[/name_m] for Cutie song. I hadn’t used it for any pets in case I were to have a human child some day. DH & I are fairly sure that we only want to stick w/fur babies, so maybe I’ll have a cat or pup named [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] someday!
Anyway, I think that I say it more like Gwen-ev-ear. I love love love the name [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], but I just don’t know if I love it for [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]. Probably because [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] doesn’t have any 'w’s, & it just doesn’t feel right. Same thing w/Gwen. [name_f]Lovely[/name_f] name, but I don’t know…it certainly makes sense. I just can’t get on board. I like [name_f]Vera[/name_f] just fine, but better as a full name. Now I think that [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] nn [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] or [name_f]Wendy[/name_f] is quite nice. The only nn that I think I would use for [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] would be [name_f]Gigi[/name_f]. It may make even less sense, who knows!
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] my rambling helps.
