Arwenna vs. Arwen

Which do you prefer? Numerical rankings (1-10, 10 is best) are helpful as well. Arwenna (Ar-WEN-a) is Welsh for "muse" and Arwen (AR-wen) is a more familiar, shortened form of it. Some people are also familiar with it due to LOTR, it means "noble maiden" in Tolkein’s invented elvish language. Arwen is a female name, Arwnyn/Arvin/Arwin are male names. Finally, if anyone is certain of the correct Welsh pronunciation of Arwenna, we would love to know! Thank you all so much! We will probably refer to her often as Wen or Arwen no matter which name we choose.

Genie's Mailbag

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
