DH and I both love Merewyn but I'm worried it's a bit too out there. We come from quite traditional families. Is it too random? DH is half Irish and I'm half Welsh so the name fits in that sense but other family names are things like Emma, David, Robert etc. Very 'solid'!

Ooh very unusual. I like it!

Thanks smile

No chance people will look at us askance and ask whether it's a real name? (My fear!)

It looks very welsh to me, so I wouldn't question if it was a real name IYSWIM.

we are considering Merewen for are dd due in July . it is a really pretty name and sound mellifluous. Like you dh is Welsh and i'm Irish but i keep worrying whether it's too unusual . although pronunciation wise it's much easier than many welsh or irish names . I also wonder if people will think we made it up .
we are considering Merryn as a slightly more mainstream alternative .

If it's any help we initially didn't call dd5 a name because we thought people would think it was too posh . after a few months when the name we'd given her didn't fell right we changed her name to the "posh" or so we thought name , people very readily accepted it and no one has ever confirmed our initial worries . i think what i'm trying to say is if you use Merewen people may initially look at you shock .confused ,hmm but they will rapidly accept it as your daughters name and learn to love it
