  1. i love the name gwendalyn its very optimistic pure at heaet but i just hate the shyness

  2. I’ve always loved the name Gwendolyn, its unique.

  3. Our sweet Gwendolyn Skye goes by Gwen. I have always loved the name Gwen so it is special and sweet to me. I love older and unique names.

  4. It fell into the family roots of my husband (Welsh) fit well with our sons Irish name, and offered so many nicknames. We love Gwendolyn as it is and call her Gwendolyn, Gwennie, and Gwen, but felt like it offered a little bit of freedom.
