Hi everyone

Due to having a lot of welsh blood in me (despite living in London) I really want a welsh name for my daughter. At the moment I'm leaning towards Meredith. Does anyone have any thoughts, or better suggestions?

I like Mai, Seren, Alwenna, Llinos and Cerys. All good welsh names

Take care to check how non welsh speakers pronounce any names first. As you'll be living outside of wales it needs to be easy and straightforward to pronounce.
I have a friend called Gwenan who moved to England and is now known as Gwen because of people mispronouncing her name and you wouldn't even think it would be hard to pronounce.

I like Meredith. How about Eowyn?

My favourite girls names which also happen to be Welsh:

What about Mair? Pronounced my-arr I've always thought it pretty. Or alternatively I have a soft spot for Lleony pronounced Clee-O- nee.
