Comments for the name Gwyneth


Comments for GWYNETH:

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 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!

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.
