I like them both. Elizabeth is my middle name too so go with Gwen.makes me think of Gwen Stefani and I like her. Both work with the surname too. Congrats!

I'd say Gwen. I know 3 (one 50, one 30s, one 20s) and they are 3 of the most awesome women I've ever met. A great, strong, wonderful name!

(Of the ones I know, one is Gwynneth and one Gwendoline, the other is just Gwen).

I think Nancy flows better with the surname as not a fan of having tow 1-syllable names, but both are lovely names.

I think Nancy sounds lovely

Like Nancy but love Gwen. I have a very special lady called Gwen in my life.

Nancy is a nn for Agnes which I'd have as a birth cert name if you went for Nancy

Gwen. I always find Nancy quite tricky to say (stupid I know) but I'm Northern so would pronounce it with a short 'a' where I think more southern accents may pronounce it as Narncy- just worth thinking about if you're bothered how it's pronounced.

I like Gwen. Lovely name.

Gwen, it's lovely.

I love Nancy, and Jane will be DD's middle name (if I ever have her...!) so I vote for that.

Nancy Jane flows beautifully.
Congratulations grin

Gwen is awesome. Nancy sounds a bit feeble (sorry for any Nancys out there including DM )

Gwen, lovely name smile

Nancy, I don't like the name Gwen at all though- it sounds really harsh.

Nancy. Definitely.

Gwen is horrible. So dull and unpleasant sounding.

Oh and congrats! She sounds gorgeous smile .
