Meaning:Marshland; Peace; Perfume
Fen is a unique gender-neutral name with contested origins. While it means “marshland” in English, it can also take on the meaning “peace” from a Frisian derivative. Unrelated to both is a Chinese reference that associates Fen with “perfume.” As such, it’s a short and sweet moniker that can inspire your little one to spread joy and happiness no matter which room they walk into. Used as both a given name and surname, why you wouldn’t choose Fen makes no scents at all!
