Etymology of the name GWENDOLEN.
Meaning of the baby name GWENDOLEN.

  

GWENDOLEN.  Welsh Arthurian legend name of a wife of Arthur, meaning "white browed." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

Gwendolen is made by the Brut, and by Geoffrey of Monmouth, the daughter of Corineus, Duke of Cornwall, and wife of Locrine, son of the original Brutus...
    The Welsh saints give us St. Gwendolen or Gwen as the mother of Caradog Vreichfras, the excellent Sir Cradocke of the Round Table.  In the Triads and the Mabinogion, Gwendolen is a beauty of Arthur's court, and in the bardic enumeration of the thirteen wonders of Britain appears the gold chess-board of Gwendolen, on which, when the silver men were placed, they would play of themselves.  Gwendolen, Gwen, and Gwyn have never been disused in Wales.  The first was the daughter of the last native prince, and her name is increasingly in favour with the lovers of archaisms. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
