- It's a welsh name I adore. A crow at the Tower of London is called Bronwyn, but that's not the reason. It means dark and pure in Welsh, which is an unsual combination, as white is normally associated with purity. If I were to have twin girls they'd be named Bronwyn and Eowyn.
- this name seems very Mideval to me. i think its romantic and classy, yet contemporary and fresh.
- Strong name for a girl. Unusual name. This girl will be head strong, and doesn't mind being different.
Bronwen is a Welsh name made up from the words bron "breast" and gwen, meaning "white; holy; blessed" In Welsh, names ending in -wyn are usually male, while feminine names end in -wen. So Technically, Bronwen would be a girls' name, and Bronwyn would be a boys' name. In the USA, this spelling is probably favored for girls because it looks more "exotic" with the "y" in it.
