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

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
