Rowena
Rebecca

any thoughts or opinions ?

I like Rowena and Rebecca, not keen on the others.

I really like Rowena & Rebecca, but I'm not keen on Elspeth or Gwyneth.

Morwenna is unusual & interesting. I quite like it.

Like Morwenna and Rowena most. How about Kerenza?

Oh Kerenza is lovely! It has the same feel as Morwenna & Rowena, doesn't it?

Love the name Morwenna. It's a beautiful Cornish name, as is Kerenza, which you can also spell Kerensa, and is Cornish for 'love'. Also really like Elspeth, but there seem to be so many 'El' girls names around at the moment.

Don't like Gwynneth or Elspeth, too lispy for me!

Morwenna is a really nice name but Kerenza is fabulous!!!!

I had Karenza on my list till I read it meant void in Italy.
I love Morwenna. Peppa pigs mum is morwenna banks.

Great list.

I like Morwenna and Rowena.

If you like Cornish names then you might also like Demelza, Lamorna or Lowenna?

Why are you thinking that Kerenza = void in Italian ?

The usual word for 'void' in Italian is 'vuoto'. Perhaps other Mumsnetters can kindly confirm?

Morwenna - quite like it. Very unusual
Gwyneth - really dislike this, sorry.
Elspeth - dislike this too
Rowena - like it
Rebecca - really like it. This is my name though and I have found that 'Becky' (which I don't really like) becomes pretty much inevitable.

I love Elspeth, it's so classic and pretty. I like Rowena and Rebecca too smile

I'm a Morwenna, and although I actually really like having it as my name, your daughter will have to be prepared to spell it and pronounce it to everyone, explain where it comes from and have various strange nicknames! People also feel very free to comment on what they think of it quite openly. Having said that, I've only ever met one other Morwenna and I love having a unique and memorable name.

My nickname's Mo, Molly or Enna btw.
