Gwynn or Gwyneth?

Do you like Gwynn better as a full name or as a nickname for Gwyneth?

Re: Gwynn or Gwyneth?

  • Nickname for Gwyneth or Gwendolyn

  • I prefer Gwynn (I actually prefer the spelling Gwen but that wasn't the question). The name Gwen/Gwynn/Gwyn has a long history as a stand alone name. It's a strong and beautiful name.

  • I prefer Gwynn as a nn, and Gwyneth is a lovely full name.

    My ex's sister's name was Gwyn, and I thought it was...interesting. Their parents were pretty hippie-ish so all of their names were on the slightly unique side. But it's pretty!
  • I don't like nicknames, but Gwynn seems incomplete for a formal name.  I'd use Gwyneth as the name and call her Gwynn.  Both are beautiful.

  • I actually pronounce Gwynn like "Gwin" when I read it. I've tried to read it and say "Gwen" in my my head, but time and time again, I say "Gwin". Mostly due to to the -lyn endings being so popular now. I would go with Gwyneth and nn Gwen.

  • Where I am Gwyneth and Gwyn both sound like "win" and are lovely, although I'd go Gwyneth with Gwyn as a nn.

    Not sure which pronunciation you're going for, but if you want to rhyme with "when" I'd spell it Gwenyth nn Gwen.

    I know Gwynn is a full name but it still feels incomplete to me so I would go with Gwyneth.  I also like Gwendolyn.
