Origin:Welsh
Meaning:happiness; fair bow; blessed ring
This Welsh name comes in many spellings, including Gwyneth, Gwenith, and Gwendolyn. It's derived from the word gwenith, which means "wheat," but the name can also mean "happiness; fair bow; blessed ring." Gwenyth comes from the name Gwynedd, an Ancient Welsh kingdom and modern Welsh county. Parents might be most familiar with the name's Gwyneth variation, thanks to actress Gwyneth Paltrow and priestess Gwyneth Berdara in Sarah J Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series, but Gwenyth offers the familiar sound in a more unexpected spelling.
