Arwen Undómiel is a character in the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. A member of the Half-elven in Middle-earth, she is neither elf or man, and must choose which to become. Arwen chooses to give up the immortal life of an elf to marry her love Aragorn.

Arwen is a real name of Welsh origin, which can also be spelled Arwyn. The meaning of the Welsh name is 'muse', but in Tolkien's world, it means 'noble maiden or noble woman'. It can be used for both boys and girls. In 2011, 72 girls were named Arwen, and 20 girls were named Arwyn.

  1. Really pretty name, and because of Tolkien, it seems so romantic.
