Came across a small Gwyneth lately. I've got nothing against it as a name, but it did surprise me. It's a generation below the currently fashionable old lady names, isn't it? - kind of like Doreen, Angela, Caroline?

Gwyneth Paltrow has much to do with it I'd suspect.

I don't much like it but I suppose Gwyneth Paltrow has made it cool.

My money's on Nolene as the new Mia grin

I like it, but suspect there are a lot of girls named after Gwyneth Paltrow!

I quite like it but, then again, I like Caroline too! It is quite an unexpected choice for a little girl though!

Err...just to say that I'm a 25 year old Caroline and I really don't associate my name with Doreen or Angela...!

Hate Gwyneth. Horrible lispy ending to the name.

Sorry Caroline blush

If it helps, my name is commonly associated with small yappy dogs.

I'm a Gwyneth and have never thought it ages me at all. The only thing I think people can tell about me from my name is that I'm welsh, and that's no bad thing grin I would not choose my name and think there are much nicer welsh names but I have never disliked it particularly. No one actually calls me the full name anyway.

I think of it as a traditional/timeless Welsh name and excempt from being of a particular era.

I love it :-)

It's my name and I don't like it- it is often misspelt too. I've been called Gweneth often. I prefer Gwyn for short.

I like Gwyneth and Gwyneth Paltrow is pretty
