Gwendolen Chant is a character in Diana Wynne Jones' book Charmed Life, and she's horrible. There's also another horrible Gwendolen in Enid Blyton's Malory Towers series (actually Gwendoline Mary). Consequently, I don't like the name much.

In Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae, Gwendolen is a queen who goes to war with her husband after he betrays her for another woman. She wins, buries her dead husband, kills the other woman and the woman's daughter, and proceeds to rule with wisdom and kindness. Some Arthurian legends also give Merlin a wife named Gwendolen. I love this name, though I prefer it spelled -lyn rather than -len. I'm a sucker for Gwen names.
