Reminds me of Gwendolyn and Lillian, which isn't a bad thing and the association with royalty is cool. Very nice name.

My name is Gwenllian and although it's nice to have a unique name, I want a name that's easy to pronounce. I can't tell you how many times I've had to spell out my name in Starbucks and to end up with a name like 'grunphin' written across my drink! I have yet to come across a non-welsh speaker who can pronounce my name correctly. I think you have to be a welsh speaker because we have a different alphabet with letters like dd, ch, ll, ph which are hard to pronounce.

If you really are desperate to pronounce the 'll' correctly then I would go on Youtube.

This name is beautiful, but it's impossible to pronounce just by looking at it. I can't even pronounce it, as I'm not Welsh, although from what I've heard I think the ll makes a kind of sh sound with a little bit of an l sound on the end of the sh sound. It's nice, but not a good name to use outside of Wales/by people who aren't Welsh because no one will be able to say it.

Gwenlli and Llio are the most usual diminutives, both also in use as names in their own right.

I like this name very much. Sometimes I wish I lived in a country, where it is not so weird to be named like that. There are so many beautiful names in the world and Czech names are too boring for me. Most of them.

Looks like a combination of Gwen and Lillian, and I dislike the latter because it is so stuffy and dated. Oh well. Cool name. :D.

Its definitely not pronounced as described above, sorry. 'Ll' is a single letter, which is very hard to explain the pronunciation of, but it does not sound like the letter 'L'. I know a couple of Gwenllians, and I don't know a single English speaker who can pronounce the name properly!

I'm pretty sure this is pronounced Gwen-HLEE-an.

Gwen Stefani bears a similar name but not the same name. :(

I like Gwen but I cannot figure out how to pronounce and that would mean troubles for a kid.
