I would associate this name with a woman with fancy clothes and wavy hair. Probably because a girl I went to school with was of this identity. I also think it is a nice name though.

-Wyn is only correctly used when the bearer of a Welsh name is male. In Welsh, the feminine suffix is -wen. -Wyn is, however, a feminine suffix in Irish.

Are you sure? I've studied Scots Gaelic and Irish and neither has the letters "j", "k", "q", "v", "w", "x", "y", or "z".

I was named Olwyn because my mother liked the piece of music entitled 'Dream of Olwen' from the film 'While I Live' (1947). My father used a different spelling when I was registered.
