- Comments and insights on the name Myfanwy: | Edit
I got a shock when I saw this name. It looked so...weird! But it's actually not that bad.
- Personal experiences with the name Myfanwy: | Edit
My father in law is Welsh and his mothers name was Myfanwy, his desire was for one of his children to have the name for one of their daughters. It didn't need to be a first name, just in there as a remembrance. My sister in law was supposed to be the one to use it, and after 2 girls of her own she hadn't used the name, my father in law was very disappointed. So when we found out that we were expecting our second girl we made it a point to use the name. It is her 3rd name, but it flows beautifully for her name. Zion Tayah Myfanwy. It's a mouthful for our daughter, but it is a strong name and the Myfanwy just makes it all the more perfect. Zion= Sign/Message from God Tayah (derived from Tea)= gift from God and Myfanwy= my blessed one/my dear one... just perfect.
My daughter's name is Elizabeth Myfanwy. When she was little, she went by the nickname, Myfi. Now, that she is an adult she goes by Myfanwy. She was named for my mother's mother, Charlotte Elizabeth, and my father's favorite aunt, Myfanwy.
