Arwyn is a gender-neutral name whose distinctive Celtic flavor earns it a dreamy mythological feel. Perhaps this is why Arwyn found wide acclaim in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings as Aragorn's great elven love Arwen. Indeed, Tolkien took great influence from Welsh for much of his elvish language, making it no surprise that Arywn would be a muse for the beautiful half-elf. Under his expert hand, Arywn transforms from a "very fair" or "bright"—from the Welsh gwyn/gwen—into a figure of great courage, sacrifice, and love.
