I love Olwen, is that considered dated in Wales?

Interesting that Dominic has just moved out of the top 100 outside of wales but is in top 5 in wales. There's not usually such a huge difference with a classic sort of name.

We gave our little boy the middle name Cian in 2006, and it's hilarious when London doctors try to pronounce it....

SO far we've had:

Michael Caine (why, WHY would we have called our child that???)

We've learned, the next one will be William or Gabriel Thomas....

Cian is Irish! Even here, a lot of people use the K. Cian looks better though!

Is Cian a Welsh name too? Did not know that.

Not many Olwens (little ones anyway).It's nice-due fro a revival.

Where are all the Serens then? I've got one and there aren't many in North Wales.

zoe? how odd. can't say i've met any.

I was under the impression there were 100s of Serens in Cardiff. There are at least 2 in Croydon

Is there a more detailed list?

When we got DS christened in Aberkenfig in South Wales the priest said Cian was a local name, so AFAIK it's Welsh too.

Can't find a more detailed list, this came from an article about names registered for the Child Trust Fund

It would have to be Cian not Kian - there's no K in the welsh alphabet!!

I'm hankering after Olwen, I think it's lovely, OH says it's too much of a nana name.

I don't think Olwen is a grandmother name. I have many friends in their 30s with mothers called Olwen. I'd say it is more akin to a name like Christine, or Val really.
