I don't like it at all, sorry. It's a bit lumpen.

Are they dark? Because in the welsh it means fair or similar

We are over near the Welsh border and there are lots of Arwens.... Some are just Arwen, some use it as a diminutive for Arrianwen so here Welsh origins would be my first thought - then LOTR

It was on my list but ex vetoed it sad

I like it.

I think it's beautiful and wouldn't care about The Lord of the rings association a nice name is a nice name IMO smile

Not so sure about that flatmum, what with it being a classic book. But agree it's a pleasant name.

I think it's a really nice name. The LOTR associations will have died down by the time she's at school

It's nice.

Gorgeous name. I do think LOTR but still beautiful

Fine - I would think he was a fan of LOTR. Have heard much worse.

Thank goodness for that!

He has a son called Reuben. He is a LOTR fan and his wife wouldn't let him call Ds Aragorn!

ClaraOswald Wed 12-Jun-13 20:46:28

Lord of the Rings fan.

A lovely Welsh name - or is he a Lord of the Rings fan...?

MrsMagpieCovetsShinyThings Wed 12-Jun-13 20:41:53

It's a gorgeous name but I think of LOTR every time I hear it.
