Or is that Huw? In English it would be 'Hugh'

Aneurin, Gruffydd, Idris, Gwynfor, Gethin &
Taliesin are my favourites

Llongyfarchiadau!
My current favourites are Meirion, Emrys, Twm, Bryn, Llwyd (but maybe ll isn't a good idea in England!) Mabon, Iddon, Dewi, Dafydd, Endaf, Eilir, Meilir, Mefin, Hywel, Cadog, Selyf.
Where in Wales are you from? You could use a Welsh name local to you- for example if from Ynys Mon you could use Cybi or Seiriol. I recently heard of a Beuno, which I LOVE.

Aaaah, only now seeing your username... I'm guessing Cardiff? grin

Macsen is a favourite of mine.

Why not Wynn if you like it? Easy to spell and say if you're in England.

Takver Sun 10-Jun-12 21:00:21

Obviously that should be, easy for other people to spell and say!

Jins Sun 10-Jun-12 21:01:10

I really like the name iori

I'm Welsh and live in England too. My DC both have Welsh names but we purposely chose ones easy to pronounce by non Welsh people. DH is English so it was easy to check. Some names I thought were easy he just couldn't say so I'd check with someone non-Welsh if you're worried about pronunciation. DS is Evan by the way which obviously I love! grin

I have used Iestyn and Taliesin.
