Gwendolyn has Welsh origins and means “fair,” “holy,” or “blessed.” The name becomes popular in literature during the late 19th century. Nicknames: Gwen, Lyn, or Genny.

8. Edith

Edith is derived from the Old English words for “prosperous in war.” It first appeared in the 15th century and had a resurgence in the 19th century. Famous Ediths include St. Edith Stein, who wrote extensively on the beauty of femininity in relation to the spiritual life. Recently, this name appears both in the movie Despicable Me and the television show Downton Abbey. Nicknames for Edith include Eddie or Edie.
