  1. I love Morven! She’s so elegant and romantic. There’s a book by Garth Nix, Frogkisser, that has sisters named Anya and Morven!

  2. From a VERY female Morven I Personally love my name as it is very unique and very Scottish. You probably have to be from the area to be able to pronounce it correctly as Scottish people tend to pronounce our “R’s”and vowels and not forget about them. You are night though Sarah, Morvern probably is easier to say. Interesting discussion!
