Gwen: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Typically a diminutive of Gwendolyn, a Welsh name comprised of two elements: "gwyn," meaning white or fair, and "dolyn," meaning either ring or eyebrows. So maybe since we're knocking off that "dolyn" suffix, we can just say that Gwen by itself means fair. But no matter whether she's super-blonde or a raven-haired beauty, Gwen is a stellar pick.



Famous people named Gwen:

Singers Gwen Stefani and Gwen Guthrie; journalist Gwen Ifill; U.S. Congresswoman Gwen Moore; Olympic gold medalist Gwen Jorgensen.

Fun fact:

Gwen Stacy is the name of Spider Man's love interest.
