I only know adults named Gwen. I used to not like it for sure, but on the right kid it could be cute.

I LOVE Gwen. Guinevere used to be on my list. I think it's really pretty.

I think it's cute as a nickname, but I'm against it being a given name. Guinevere, Gwyneth, and Gwendolyn are all fine.

I think it's really cute, but not sure I'd use it myself. I would probably do Gwendolyn as the full name though.

My daughter would totally be a Gwen (nn for Gwyneth) if I didn't have a witch of a grandmother with that name. I think it ages very well but is so cute for a child.

I like it a lot! I prefer "just" Gwen, as I do not like Gwyneth or Gwendolyn.

DD's friend's is short for Guinevere but honestly I just like Gwen by itself.

No offense to anyone but Guinevere seems stuffy and pretentious to me.

I love it! And, I love it as a name and not a nickname for a longer name.

My 4 year old niece is named Gwendolyn (we call her Gwen or Gwennie) after her great-grandma. They have precisely the same personality, so it's fitting.
