I really think that this is a very beautiful name and I am glad to have it. But I think that it is high time people started pronouncing my name right! My name is not Gwen, it is Gwyneth. If you don't understand how to pronounce my name then just pretend that the y is making an i sound. Like win. Well, that is all for now!

I cannot stress this comment enough! It's also my name. Be aware that if you name your child Gwyneth, people will be mispronouncing and misspelling it their entire life. The correct, Welsh pronunciation is using an 'i' sound. If you want to name your child Gwen, maybe you could call them Gwendolyn. Even many of my long-time friends pronounce my name with an 'e' sound simply because they don't know better and it's more common.
To anyone considering naming their daughter Gwyneth:
Please carefully weigh and consider how important it is for your daughter to have an unusual/foreign name with how important it is that anyone spells or pronounces it correctly.
All I will say is that, nobody calling me by my real name, with an 'i' sound, gets old. It gets really old. It matters more than you might think.

I prefer this spelling over Gwenyth. This spelling didn't appear on BC vital stastics for 2005 but the spelling Gwenyth did.

Gorgeous name, and I like the nickname Gwen. Very feminine!

Actually, this name is pronounced with an 'i' sound. 'Gwenyth' or 'Gwendolyn' are pronounced with an 'e' sound, though!

This is my favorite spelling of Gwenyth.

This name reminds me of an old person. I don't know why.

Gwenyth is not an alternate spelling of Gwyneth. The two have different sounds. Gwenyth is pronounced with the short "e" sound as in GWEN-ith, whereas Gwyneth is pronounced with the short "i" sound as in GWIN-eth.

Even though I love the name Guinevere, regardless of whether you pronounce it GWEN-eneveer or GWYN-eveer, I hate this name. It always sounded old-fashioned to me somehow, like the name of old people. I don't like the ending with the ''th''.

Gwyneth Jones is a famous Welsh Wagnerian soprano, best known for the role of Brünnhilde in the legendary Centenary Ring production, directed by Patrice Chéreau and conducted by Pierre Boulez.

This and Gwenyth are possibly Anglicizations of Gwendydd, a supposed saint and daughter of Brychan. In some Arthurian legends, Gwen(d)dydd is given as the name of Merlin's sister. The name is composed of elements 'gwen' ('white') and 'dydd' ('day'), and carries the literal and figurative meaning 'morning star'.

This name is very beautiful, and it has a nice meaning. I dislike Gwyneth Paltrow, though, so I probably wouldn't use it.

I prefer Gwyneth over Gwenyth by a mile. However, my best friend, Gwyneth, pronounces her name like Gwen-ith, and I prefer this pronunciation over Gwin-eth.

I adore this name! It's so exotic and beautiful!

I find the name Gwyneth really beautiful. This is a lovely name.

This is my name and I spell it Gwyneth and people often spell it Gwienth. I don't know how you can mess it up that bad.

I want to like this name, but unfortunately I can't help but think of that repulsive, overexposed, hypocritical "celebrity" Gwyneth Paltrow.

The name Gwyneth was given to 236 girls born in the US in 2015.

Normally Welsh girl's names have to be spelled Gwen and the males Gwyn, but this one is the exception since it comes from Gwynaeth, the Welsh word for joy rather than the Gwen/Gwyn word.
