I like this name with the pronunciation "moor-WEE-nuh". I hope it's not actually "moor-WHEN-uh"!

My daughter Morwenna was given this name because her father is a Cornishman. An elderly gentleman in his village gave us some old Cornish names. In Cornwall the name means 'wind on the moors'.

My middle name is Morwenna and I pronounce it "MORE-WEN-A".

I quite like it, it's not well known at all and it sounds pretty.

Ehh. Could be better, in my opinion. (I noticed that 5% of people rated this a boy's name. Why would you call a boy a name that means 'maiden'?)

This name is so pretty! I really like it, though I keep accidentally pronouncing it Mor-vay-na. I know there's a name that is pronounced More-ven, so that's probably where I'm getting this from.

This name is pronounced mohr-WEN-ah in Cornish.

Mor is great, and wen is blessed. So why doesn't the name mean "Great blessed one"?

This is my friend's name and I love it! She pronounces it as more-when-ah and gets really annoyed when people call her more-ween-ah (for obvious reasons!) Her nicknames are mo, moo, wen and wenna.

This name has a really cool Medieval feel to it. Since I love many things Medieval, the name really appeals to me. She'd definitely be the only Morwenna in her class!

Hearing the name Morwenna reminds me of tales of The Knights of the Round Table. It's just so magical. I love it.

This name is very unique and exotic, but kind of hard to pronounce.

This is a Cornish name meaning 'maid of the sea' from the Cornish words 'mor' (sea) and 'wen' (a fair woman).

Morwenna is a very beautiful, magical name. There are many meanings given for it, but most seem to come from people trying to find Welsh/Cornish words it looks like. It's most likely that 'mor' means 'sea' and the rest is just unknown. It certainly doesn't mean 'maiden' in Cornish, as that is 'moren'.

I disagree with the usage, which is given only as 'Welsh'. It's very much considered a Cornish name and is often suggested amongst expectant Cornish families. In fact, there are more birth records of Morwennas in Cornwall than for the whole of Wales. [noted -ed]
