Well I would say a girl.

WorzselMummage Wed 29-Apr-09 17:20:48

I'd have thought a Girls name.

It's really pretty

I have never heard of this name before and it's not in my 1000 baby names book

so it may be quite rare grin

well it's small and cute so suggests femaleness jenny wren etc

wotsits Wed 29-Apr-09 17:22:20

I think girl, as in jenny wren.

my ds2 is small and cute!

I think it could be either. I like it for a boy.

Haven't heard of Wren, but Ren is unisex - Ren & Stimpy (male) and there's a female Ren in one of the American teen sitcoms.

Girl's - but if you have to ask, don't use it.

PLEASE don't call a boy Wren - it's cruel.

Have to say, seeker, I don't think it's really for you to beg someone not to use a name she might like...

(as it happens, the OP didn't ask for opinions!)

Girls, to feminine for a boy.

NorbertDentressangle Wed 29-Apr-09 17:44:31

I knew a boy called Wren/Ren ( it was his full, christened name but I'm not sure of spelling) he would be about 40 now

singersgirl Wed 29-Apr-09 17:45:10

Neither. It's a bird's name.

seeker Wed 29-Apr-09 17:46:44

Sure bumpsoon's delighted to have you fighting her corner, kwini.

She didn't say I couldn't express an opinion, did she - and some things need to be said.

I don't know
Is Robin just a boy's name, or is it unisex?
But then you've got jenny wren.

I've never heard of it as a name.

"some things need to be said"

Does this make you the self-appointed guardian of good judgement?

I worked with a male charge nurse called Wren. He didn't seem troubled by his name.

chequersmate Wed 29-Apr-09 18:16:17

It's a bird's name.


lotspot Wed 29-Apr-09 19:04:55

I'm not sure I could say either way!

its fairly unisex in my mind I think

Reminds me strongly of the girls name Erin for some reason!!

Littlefish Wed 29-Apr-09 19:09:12

Kwini - Seeker has expressed an opinion. You, on the other hand are simply being a bit snide in my opinion. Give it a rest.

Only heard of L'Wren, who is Mick Jagger's lady.
