man i never thought it would be this hard. i didn't even consider names until i found out i was having a girl. so far we are stuck on Gwendolyn and he is looking for a middle name that starts with an E. I like Elizabeth! he says with our long last name, its too much but i dig it! what do ya think mamas?
I think it's beautiful. Very classic, which is totally my style. I don't think you need to worry about it being too long. There aren't that many times that someone calls out your first, middle, and last name all together. Past birth, I can't think of a time that it ever happens.
Mom to (12), (7), (5), (4), (born 7/8/11), , and
My first and middle names are the same length as the names you suggest (though my last name is only 5 letters). I've never felt it was particularly long. Those are beautiful, and I agree, classic names. Good choices, both.
I think Gwendolyn Elizabeth is lovely!! Here are some other options if he wants an "E" name:
Gwendolyn Eloise (ell-oh-weez)
Gwendolyn Edina (eh-deen-uh)
Gwendolyn Eva (you can pronounce this ee-va or ay-va even!)
