If you had children called Myfanwy Elfrida and Seamus Owen, what would you choose for a third child (boy or girl)

Welsh/Irish parents

His veto: Pascal, Gwendolen, Emrys

Her veto: Blodwen, Aneurin, Ffion

P.S Blodwen has got to be one of the least surprisingly-vetoed names of all time

Mess with the system. Go with Ned.

Helpotron3000 Sat 11-Nov-17 11:31:41

Downside to that plan, Skittles, is that I'd then have a child called Ned

I'm a little bit in love with Carys but had it vetoed sad

NotAgainYoda Sat 11-Nov-17 11:40:39

ooooh yes, Carys is lovely

Gethin. Llewellyn. Brenin. Aled.
Arianwyn. Bronwyn. Rhiannon. Megan. Lowri. Angharad. Bethan

Helpotron3000 Sat 11-Nov-17 11:59:42

I also vetoed Morag

Llewellyn, I quite like, although I keep thinking about Laurence Llewellyn Davis.
I think Patrick/Padraig would make a good middle name for a boy

Helpotron3000 Sat 11-Nov-17 12:07:26

I also really like Llewyn, as in Inside Llewyn Davis the film, but apparently it's not a real Welsh name

Dilys? I love the sound of this, but someone told me it was a Welsh granny name...

Mumof3ladies Sat 11-Nov-17 13:03:10

I love Arianwen and Gwenllian for girls and Gethin and Cerith for boys 😊

-wyn indicates a boy. -wen a girl.
Bromwyn isn't a name, Bronwyn is horrible, Bronwen is lovely.
Brenin as a boy's name has to be a joke.

MikeUniformMike Sat 11-Nov-17 14:01:03

Gwilym is popular, Welsh for William.

pret Sat 11-Nov-17 14:09:49

I love Dilys

MikeUniformMike Sat 11-Nov-17 14:21:27

I prefer Llywelyn to Llewelyn. Llewellyn is the anglicised form.
Dilys rhymes with Phyllis.

Avoid LLs as they are unpronounceable outside native mother tongue Welsh speakers.
G is always hard in welsh. Ng is a separate letter - usually ng not ng-g.
Vowel combinations like wy, ei and eu are unpronounceable outside native mother tongue Welsh speakers.

Myfanwy is pronounced Muv-ann-wy - the wy bit sounds like the English "with" without the "th".

Names - ending -ir or are unpronounceable outside native mother tongue Welsh speakers.

How about Caradog for a boy - Car-AD-og

Chaffinch4 Sat 11-Nov-17 15:05:47

I know Dilys rhymes with Phyllis. Not sure what your point is... (I like the sound of Phyllis too!)

daisypond Sat 11-Nov-17 15:42:47

Bryn, Cian for boys
Olwen for a girl

JennyOnAPlate Sat 11-Nov-17 15:50:39

I like iestyn or rhydian for a boy. Celyn is nice for a girl.

RavenWings Sat 11-Nov-17 15:56:51

Niall, Fiachra, Daragh, Aidan, Elgar, Harri, Idris, Cathal, Lorcan, Diarmuid, Emmet, Ciar for a boy.

Cara, Laoise, Seren, Elinor, Eleri, Roise, Riona, Eirlys, Fiadh, Muireann, Niamh, Arwen, Eira, Saoirse, Manon, Rhian for a girl.
