Hi all,

We are expecting a boy and looking for some inspiration for some nice boy's names.

We have a Welsh surname, and I have a Welsh first name. I'm from Wales but live in England, and my husband is born and bred English, so I need a name that he can master with spelling and pronunciation!

I quite like Arwyn, Emrys and Rees (grandfather's name and spelling).

Any ideas would be great!

Emrys is lovely, could consider Ieuan or Huw?
Or how about Taliesin Tal for short for the English?

Emrys is lovely (and easy to say). You could consider Ieuan or Huw?

Emrys and Rhys are both lovely. I really like Macsen, it was high on our list.

My favourites are Rhys and Elis, and I love Evan too but that's an anglicisation so doesn't really count.

I've never heard of Hwyl used as a name, is it common?

I'm assuming Hwyl is a misspelling of Hywel? At least I hope so grin.
