hf128219 · 29/04/2009 17:20
Well I would say a girl.
WorzselMummage · 29/04/2009 17:20
I'd have thought a Girls name.
It's really pretty

LauriefairycakeeatsCupid · 29/04/2009 17:21
I have never heard of this name before and it's not in my 1000 baby names book
so it may be quite rare
wickerman · 29/04/2009 17:22
well it's small and cute so suggests femaleness jenny wren etc
wotsits · 29/04/2009 17:22
I think girl, as in jenny wren.
Greensleeves · 29/04/2009 17:22
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.
Kwini · 29/04/2009 17:41
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!)
pinkmagic1 · 29/04/2009 17:41
Girls, to feminine for a boy.
NorbertDentressangle · 29/04/2009 17:44
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 · 29/04/2009 17:45
Neither. It's a bird's name.
seeker · 29/04/2009 17:46
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.
paisleyleaf · 29/04/2009 17:46
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?
lou031205 · 29/04/2009 18:15
I worked with a male charge nurse called Wren. He didn't seem troubled by his name.
chequersmate · 29/04/2009 18:16
It's a bird's name.
lotspot · 29/04/2009 19:04
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 · 29/04/2009 19:09
Kwini - Seeker has expressed an opinion. You, on the other hand are simply being a bit snide in my opinion. Give it a rest.
girlandboy · 29/04/2009 19:11
Only heard of L'Wren, who is Mick Jagger's lady.
