Gwenog

"Gwenog told me she often played herself. Went home in disgust."
-- extract from Gertie Keddle's diary (QA3)

Commentary

Etymology

Gwenog is most likely a made-up Welsh name. Gwen is the feminine form of the name/word Gwyn, meaning "white". Og can mean "a harrow (type of plough)". However "og" can also be added to a noun (eg. "niwl" +og = niwlog "foggy") - as gwenu means "to smile", by extension her name could mean "smiley".
