So far ...

For boys i like Aneurin and Taliesin - but DP's not keen!

For girls I like Arianwen and Ceridwen
I also like Cerys and Seren but both a bit too popular now.

Any suggestions would be brilliant smile

How about Geraint for a boy? Or my nephew is Gethyn.

Carys instead of Cerys?

Love Nia but can't have for family reasons.

Quite like Gethin, will think about it ...

My mum loves Anghared! Not 100% sure myself ...

Carys is too popular I feel too. But I do like the name. Oh, it's a maybe!

Basically if I called my DD Nia, then DD and DS would have the names of two lovers, in legend.

A tad off I feel! Kind of like calling your DCs Romeo and Juliet!

(Some of you will know what DS's name is now!)

Used to know a little girl called ffion. Thought that was a beautiful name. Lovely little girl too smile

I have changed my name briefly because this is an easy out wink.

I have a Taliesin. It's a brilliant name, I love it. Tal for short. I might also have Aneurin in mind if I ever have another boy...

I also love Llyr and Euros. And Guto.

I like Angharad. But it's my middle name so I would.

<Outs self completely, goes to change back to regular name>

What about Selyf for a boy? It's the Welsh equivalent of Seth if I remember rightly.

Then there is always Welsh spelling such as Harri, Sian etc.

My grandmother was called Eira. If my bump is a girl, and is born on a snowy day (due late Jan) then I've warned my English husband she'll be named Eira.

I've always liked Heledd - I think it's hardd iawn grin my friend likes Enfys, and I saw Esyllt recently and thought it sweet. I also taught a little Siwan recently. And I've just remembered that I like Gwenllian too.

Can I ask how you pronounce Taliesin? I've only ever seen it written down and think its lovely. DP likes Dylan for a boy but most of my family are English so he'd be called Dillon by my family instead of the roper welsh version.

To be honest, I really like Aderyn as well. I know it's 'bird' but it seems to me that names that mean things are still quite Popular in Wales and she could be Addie or Ryn or something for short <muses>

Janoschi Wed 15-Aug-12 02:48:49

I LOVE Siwan and wanted it very badly for little DD. Being pregnant and hormonal, I got hung up on the fact her surname begins with K, then couldn't get past the word 'wank' hidden in her name. Which probably doesn't occur to most folk and if that's the case, I feel very sad for not picking it!

I love Angharad and Eirlys.

Also Geraint and Aneurin.

MrsRobertDuvallHasRosacea Wed 15-Aug-12 07:01:05

I have an Uncle Aneurin.
And an Auntie Eirwen.

Lovely names.
There's always Rytherch (sp?) . My dad went to school with a Rytherch Prytherch.

My name is on someone's list...very unusual . I am not going to tell you which one!

Welsh names are beautiful.

CelticOlympian Wed 15-Aug-12 11:19:24

I know a small Rhydderch.

twll Taliesin is pronounced Tal-yes-in, emphasis on the 'yes'.

downbythewater Wed 15-Aug-12 12:29:59

Meredith
Alys
Carys
Eirwen
Mali

all lovely girl names

for boys, I agree with Gethin, and also like Huw
