I first came across this name in the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. There's a character named Wren who is a male tiger with the ability to turn human. I really like this name for a boy, but also I think it's just as pretty for a girl.

I love the name Wren, but it seems more like a girl name to me. A friend of mine named her daughter Lauren Paige, with the emphasis on the 'ren' portion = la-REN. Everyone calls her Wren and it's beautiful!

I think it's a sweet, special name. And while I understand those who don't think a nickname can be longer than a name, I disagree. Many nicknames are given as a sign of affection and I don't see anything wrong with that.

It is the best name ever.

I love the name Wren because it is so cool and epic and if you are a person that hates on the name WREN then your opinion is WRONG.

A famous bearer of this name - in a way - was fashion designer L'Wren Scott (April 28, 1964 – March 17, 2014). Though her birth name was actually Laura.

My name is Wren. Recently I was extremely happy and relieved to discover that this name has another meaning, other than English Songbird. So in case anyone was wondering, the meaning of Wren is Little Chief or Tiny Conqueror. I hope you liked this as much as I did. :)

I dislike the name Wren, as with most similar names. To me, Wren seems overly delicate, and it also seems "cute" in the sense that it won't age particularly well. It is hard for me to imagine a grown woman named Wren.

My name's Wren, I like my name I'm a boy 13 years of age.

In Britain, a Wren was a member of the Women's Royal Naval Service.
Since a Wren is a very small bird I think this is rather sweet on a grown woman.
Perhaps it's a family surname handed down when used on a boy.

Wren CAN also be a boy's name. I know a man named Wren.

Although this appears to be used primarily as a girl's name, Wren Kingston is a male character on "Pretty Little Liars."

Wren is a dreamy, beautiful girl name. :)

Wren sounds petite. I guess because a Wren is a small bird.

My sister's name is Wren Rose, and I have always loved the name. It is very unique and quite lovely. We usually end up calling her Wrenny, which is cute.

I predict this will be in the top 1000 in a few years. It came very close in 2012, just barely missing the number 1000 spot (which wasn't exactly official because a few names tied for 998 I believe). It was given to 250 girls in 2012.

I love nature so I love this name like
The name robin
As in Robin Wren
Or Wren Robin
But now that I think of it Wren Robin sounds like Red Robin so I guess Robin Wren is better.
jazzycritique  5/18/2013
I never even realized this was name. It's the name of a bird, but then again I guess that doesn't matter to a lot of people considering the popularity of robin. At first glance, I would assume this is a boy's name. I wouldn't use it, but I have to say I think it'll age well, which is so rare to find with all these modern names today.

Wren. I think it's definitely a cute name that has a nice ring to it. Not too feminine or too masculine, although I would only use it for a girl. The only problem for me is the whole bird connotation. It's like naming your daughter Pigeon. Or Magpie. I think Wren or Ren is perfectly fine as a nickname for Karen or Catherine or Renee, but not as a full name.

A nickname should not be longer than the real name is was given for. That completely defeats the purpose of a nickname. Names that are as short as Wren should stand alone.

Wren could be a neat namesake for a family member named Lawrence.

Wren can also be a boy's name. (Although it sounds feminine).
pupcake9798  10/8/2010
I think it's very pretty, but a little too simplistic for a first name, as others have said. It makes a great middle name, though.
erb816  3/19/2009
The only person I knew with this name was a guy. I also thought that this name would be more popular.
number1212  5/13/2008
It's not all that bad, but despite liking the short and simple Brynn, which is also a monosyllabic name, I find this name a tad too minimalist, and it doesn't sound nearly as pretty as Brynn. The vowel sound in Brynn is simply nicer than it is on this name.
slight night shiver  5/13/2008
I think Wren is simple yet beautiful. Understated and rare.
Belle  3/4/2008
Wren Stevens from the television series Even Stevens. She is the older sister of Louis. Portrayed by Christie Carlson Romano. Wren is the epitome of perfect and quite the opposite from her younger brother. Even Stevens is about them not getting along, as well as other teenage problems and things.
Libby2  12/30/2007
Ren Stevens on the tv show Even Stevens was named Ren spelled R-e-n. There was no double u W. I looked it up on IMDb to be sure, but I remember she had the letter R in her room or something. Ren can be a nickname for Renata/Renate.

I think this name is kinda weird and well, childish. I know a girl who uses Wren as her nickname whose name is Sharon.

Wren is Tom and Hester's only child in the books Infernal Devices and Darkling Plain which are part of the Mortal Engines quartet by Philip Reeves.
Luangi  4/29/2007
I've never crossed anyone named Wren but I have come across the name in a book. The character was male so I'm used to the name for a guy, not a girl.
Missy  2/9/2007
Wren is the name of the heroine in Sherwood Smith's book, "Wren to the Rescue."

I've also heard it used as a guy's name.
splintercat  10/13/2006
My middle name is Wren. It's what I choose to go by instead of my first name. I love it! My grandmother insisted that Wren be my middle name and I have loved her for it ever since. I am 11 weeks pregnant and we plan on using Wren as the middle name if it turns out to be a girl.
Wren  9/17/2006
I like this name! It's spunky and cute.

This is a very pretty name, unique. I like the nickname Wrennie/Rennie.

It's a rare name, but beautiful and simple. I've also heard of it used as a male name, supposedly the name of a Danish noble or prince, but I can't say for sure whether that's true.

Wren is kind of pretty. Nickname could be Renny.
