This name can also be FEMININE as a variant of GWEN or a diminutive of GWYNETH, making it UNISEX.

I know Gwyn is supposed to be a male name only, but I really only love Gwyn as a girl’s name. It’s so pretty and elegant for a girl, Gwyn. Same similarities with Gwen. I don’t see it as a boy’s name at all. Way too feminine sounding! Gwyn is such a girly name, it might be the middle name of my future daughter. I love it!

I think Gwyn would be a great feminine name as well as a masculine one. The main character in a novel I'm writing is called Gwyn (they are a male Snow White and Gwyn means "white" or "pure" like Snow). A name I would consider for a son or daughter.

My best friend's name is Gwyneth, and she's awesome! :) I like the spelling Gwyn a lot more than Gwen.

There is a name 'Gwynfa' which is a variation of this name. I have seen it used by one man and one woman - both Welsh and now dead, so an unusual and old fashioned name. They both claimed it meant 'white'.

Although I don't think this is very masculine, I still LOVE the name Gwyn, would just fit better for a girl in my opinion.

This is the name of a character in Here Lies Arthur by Philip Reeve. A girl named Gwyna changes her name to it when she pretends to be a boy. Gwin (with an 'i') is the name of Dustfinger's (male) pinemartin in Inkheart. I thought it sounded like a girl's name when I first heard it because it is similar to Gwen, but now I quite like it.

Gwyn is Dimple Lala's best friend in the book Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier. In the book, Gwyn is short for Gwyndolyn.

This would be a good nickname for the feminine names Gwyneth, Gwyneira, or Guinevere, so to me, it sounds feminine.

Gwyn is the name of the heroine, Robin Hood's daughter, in the 2001 Keira Knightley tv film "Princess of Thieves."

A lot of people seem to think this name is very feminine sounding but I love it and have always seen it as much more of a boy's name than a girl's (though Gwyneth is nice!).

I have also seen this used as a feminine pet form of Gwyneth and spelled GWINN.
