User comments for Gwen (Famous Bearer Only)
Gwen Stefani is unique and different and not like those pop clones. I also like this name, it's very pretty.

There are at least two saints with this name. One Gwen was a 5th century saint and one of the many daughters of King Brychan Brycheiniog of Brecon (himself a saint). She was married to Saint Fragan and was the mother of Saints Winwallus, Guithern, and Jacut. Another Saint Gwen was a widow, mother of Saints Cyby and Cadfan, a sister to Saint Nonna, and an aunt of Saint David of Wales. Both feast days vary (June 1, July 5, or October 18). One Gwen gave birth to triplets and grew a thrid breast. In France, cradle cap is known as 'La Mal de Sainte Gwen'. Many people confuse the facts with the two saint Gwens, but apparently both are patrons of newborn babies.
