Personal experiences with the name Gwenllian: | Edit

My name is Gwenllian. I was named after my 4th-great-grandmother, a native to Wales. Usually people shorten my name to 'Gwen' and/or think my full name is 'Gwendolyn', but I don't really mind. I love my name and it makes me feel strong when I think about my ancestor who passed her name on.
