- Personal experiences with the name Bronwyn: | Edit
It's my daughter's name. She loves it and so do we. However, many neighbors and teachers just can't get it right! (She's been called 'Bronwell' so many times...UGH!)
I know quite a few Bronwyn's surprisingly. They seem to show up in pockets because, although they are different ages, they all have cottages by my cottage. Every single Bronwyn/Bronwen I know is really awesome and self-assured. They are all go-getters with amazing accolades and desire. They are all extremely fit and healthy. I seriously would consider Bronwyn for my daughter based on the amazing Bronwyn's I have met in the past.
