Comments for ELOWEN:

Very pretty name. I would like it more if it weren't so close to Owen, one of my favorite masculine names.

Elowen is pronounced el-O-ən.

I love this name. It's gorgeous, and soft. Definitely a name I would use for a daughter.

"Elowen" looks (and sounds) like a tacky elaboration of a person's initials... L.O.N.-- Lucille Ophelia Neville, for explanation's sake. I find it neither beautiful nor even moderate... it truly is the definition of cheap, unprofessional, pompous, and infantile. In the United States it would appear terribly pretentious and perhaps even "kre8tiv"... definite trendy/fad-name prospect visible.

Elowen is similar to Ellowyne, the name of a quirky fashion doll designed for doll collectors.

I absolutely adore this first name. Beautiful, very flowy, perfect name for a girl without being too flowery.

This is a personal favorite of mine. It is similar to the name Eowyn (from Lord of the Rings), yet I find it to be much more feminine. There are so many cute nicknames to go with it (Elle, Ellie, Winnie, Wendy). Definitely would like to use this name for a future baby girl!

Elowen is a pretty name, but beware of spelling it with two ls, because "Ellowen Deeowen" is a character in Salman Rushdie's novel, The Satanic Verses. Her name translates "L-O-N-D-O-N".

I'm starting to like the spelling Elowyn. Replacing the "en" with "yn" eliminates the L-O-N factor. I also like the way it looks when written.

How would spelling it Elowyn eliminate the "L-O-N" factor? That makes no sense - it sounds the exact same when said aloud.

I would pronounce it EH-loh-wen. I think it sounds prettier that way, and it keeps the L-O-N thing out of it. Possibly spelling it Elowyn could be too much elaboration, keeping it too kre8tive and too close to the name Eowyn. Not that I don't like the name Eowyn, I actually think it's quite beautiful. But they should be able to be names each in their own right without fear of being 'variant names' of each other.

It's pronounced el-O-ən, which rhymes with Rowan. Emphasis is on the MIDDLE syllable and there is definitely no in/yn sound at the end, so spelling it 'Ellowyn' is wrong.

There's an error in the description. 'Elew' just means elm, not elm tree. Elowen comes from the Cornish word 'elowenn' meaning elm tree. [noted -ed]

My name is Elowyn spelt exactly how I've done it and pronounced L-O-Win... My parents are not stupid and I like my name Thank you.

I happen to be the bearer of this name and it is "ELOWYNE" and pronounced L-O-WIN like you "win" a game. There is a Camp Elowyne in the mountains of California, above Fresno, and the indians there said it meant "happy house" My great grandmother had found it in a book, and liked it and named my grandmother "Elowyne", as her middle name. I've been told it's a man's name and that it is Welsh, but I haven't confirmed that. There is a doll called Ellowyne Wilde, don't know where the extra "L" came from. It's a very rare name so I hope that you choose it for your daughter! Btw, nice to see a fellow "Elowyn" out there! :)

I really like this name! It's feminine, soft, has that vintage touch but is still usuable. I wish to pair it with a middle but have no idea. );
Hard time looking for middle names. Pooey.
