[name]Gwen[/name] and [name]Ewan[/name] are very, very similar in look … would you be using them both?

I think [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] is brilliant!

Some mns for [name]Gwen[/name] (all are saints’ names or feminisations of saint’s names) :
[name]Ciara[/name] (pronounced like [name]Keira[/name])
Dymphna (dimf-na; this is an anglicised form of the Irish Damhnait)
Photine (f-oh-tee-nee)

I think [name]Gwen[/name] is neutral-sounding enough that you have a fairly free reign with mns, although I do think a longer mn, like with [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name], would balance out [name]Gwen[/name]'s abruptness perfectly.

Good luck!

I thought the same thing when I saw these names in the title- too similar looking/sounding to use both. But individually, I like them a lot.

i doubt id use them both as i agree they do look too similar!

Agreed, I thought these were twin names or for a sib set. Alone they are great together they are too much alike.

I’ll try not to repeat-

I love your pick of [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]!

Here are some combinations with the saint names. Some of these names would also sound nice with [name]Gweneth[/name] or [name]Gwyneth[/name].

I really like [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name].

I would go wtih [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]. Its so handsome.

Here are some [name]Gwen[/name] ideas from the saints’ names list here on nameberry:

[name]Gwen[/name] [name]Adela[/name]
[name]Gwen[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Gwen[/name] [name]Amias[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Angelina[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Cloud[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Natalia[/name]

love [name]Gwen[/name] as a nn for [name]Gwyneth[/name]. [name]Gwyneth[/name] is the most common spelling of the name. I agree with the other posters that [name]Gwen[/name] and [name]Ewan[/name] are too much alike to be sibs.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Ewan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name].

[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Barbara[/name] - [name]Barbara[/name] is not cool on Nameberry.
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Carlotta[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Cloud[/name] - love it, and [name]Cloud[/name] is a saint’s name.
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Joaquina[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Mabyn[/name]
[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Susannah[/name]

how about [name]Gwen[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]? Im not sure whether it flows or not . Is it the spelling or the sounds or both that makes the names too similar what if ( if we did want both [name]Gwen[/name] and [name]Ewan[/name] as a sibling set) [name]Ewan[/name] was spelt [name]Euan[/name] instead would that make any difference?

[name]Gwen[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] has a very pretty flow. [name]Elizabeth[/name] is one of my faves. My preference is to use a full name so that a child has a choice whether to use their full name or nickname. I love choices. Also full names are great for formal occasions.
[name]Gwen[/name] and [name]Euan[/name] are very similar, too. The “w” and “n” sounds, and the shortness of the names makes them very much alike.
