[name_u]New[/name_u] crush: What are your thoughts on the name [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]?

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you know any? Which nickname do you prefer: [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], [name_f]Gwennie[/name_f], [name_f]Wendy[/name_f], [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], [name_f]Dolly[/name_f]…maybe [name_f]Goldie[/name_f]? — I’m partial to [name_f]Dolly[/name_f] myself.

Any suggestions on an offbeat 1-syllable middle you would pair with it? ie. [name_f]Moon[/name_f], [name_u]Wilde[/name_u], [name_u]Fox[/name_u], etc.

Thanks,
x

I love [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]! It’s my grandmothers name and I would’ve used it for my daughter had my grandma not thought it was weird :woman_shrugging: [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite nn is [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], however I do like [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] & [name_f]Wendy[/name_f], (also Windy & Gwendy ) Dolly I like but worry about how it will age, I think I would just have to meet one.

For Middles I suggest:
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_m]Fate[/name_m]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Rue[/name_u]

[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Snow[/name_u] sounds like a beautiful winter princess! I like the repeated w/o sounds.

I also like the alliteration of [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] (GG).

I much prefer [name_f]Gwendoline[/name_f] or [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f], both of which I LOVE!

I think [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] is just lovely and useable in daily life from babyhood to the office! [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] is also adorable as a pet name.

I like [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]. I only know 2 [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]’s and both are on tv. So I don’t know any “real life” [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]’s.

I think [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] would be the nickname I’d go to first. I like the nickname [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] the best but I wouldn’t automatically but that as a nickname for [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f].

Gwendolyn [name_u]Wilde[/name_u] is cute with the W in both names.

Gwendolyn [name_u]Dove[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Cove[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Lilac[/name_f]

[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_m]Moss[/name_m]

Gwendolyn is lovely. I also love [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] and [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f].

In fact I prefer [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f], both for the looks and because it seems less likely she’d be nicknamed [name_u]Lyn[/name_u] by others. I’m not a big fan of [name_u]Lyn[/name_u] names.

Dolly is a darling nn. One of the best things about [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] BTW is that one could go by [name_f]Vera[/name_f] which I adore but which feels a bit short on its own.

So [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Tea[/name_f] is what pops up. Or [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Flor[/name_f].

Good luck!

Gwendolyn is stunning. I love so many of the nicknames that can go with her.

Gwendolyn [name_f]Swan[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Love[/name_u]

I think [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] is a great name! It stands out and has a magical vibe

The most natural nn is [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], but I think [name_f]Dolly[/name_f] is a lovely nn and definitely works!

Other comments have provided awesome middle name options! I’ll throw just a few more out there for you…

I went to elementary school with a [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]. She went by [name_f]Gwen[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] and [name_f]Wendy[/name_f] are great nicknames too!

Gwendolyn is lovely! [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] is probably my favorite nickname.

Gwendolyn [name_u]Rain[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Sky[/name_u]
Gweldolyn [name_u]Thyme[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Rue[/name_u]

[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Blue[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]

I love it! It’s so elegant, yet sweet, and has so many awesome nickname options. I’d probably go for [name_f]Gwen[/name_f]/Gwennie.
