Arwen is a girl's name of Welsh origin. Coming from names like Anwen and Awan, Arwen can mean "muse," "inspiration," or "very beautiful," respectively.

In Sindarin, Tolkien’s elven language, Arwen means “noble woman.” An ancient Welsh name steeped in history, Arwen is actually quite unique despite its use in one of the most famous stories ever told.
