Love, love Bronwen. It's an acquired taste since it's not frilly. It almost, well, it does sound masculine at first glance. But the more I got used to it the more I saw it's beauty. "How Green was My Valley" helped out a lot too.
I prefer the Bronwen spelling because I did some digging and found out that traditionally masculine Welsh names tend to use "y's" where feminine ones use "e's." This is counter to modern tastes, but I like to be authentic when possible.
Bronwen Isolde is a stock combination for me. Others you might like:
Bronwen Imelda (I stole that from someone on these boards)
Bronwen Angharad (full frontal Welshness)
Bronwen Phoebe ;-)
I used to dislike Phoebe. It reminded me of a buzzing insect / bee. But it's grown on me too and works surprisingly well in combinations. It has an energetic and nature-y feeling for me.
Ursula Phoebe (Dammit. I thought of this one before "Friends." Is it still too Friends-y?)
Phoebe Letitia / Laetitia
Phoebe Alice / Alix
Sweet, overlooked Nina. Poor thing. Let's see if we can give her a day out of the house with these:
Nina Katharine / Kathryn
Nina Leontine ("LAY-un-teen")
Nina Sylvie / Sylvia / Silvestra
Nina Jessamine ("-min")
Nina Susan / Suzanne
Nina Violet / Violette
Nina Niamh (this may be the worst combination I've ever come up with)
Are there any here that interest you? Thanks. This was a lot of fun.
