which do you prefer, or neither? Not totally in love with either of them but need a welsh name and it is one of very few name that DH likes

I prefer Carys, but both are nice.

I prefer Cerys, but my favourite Welsh girls names are Hawys and Dilys.

Like Carys best of the two, but that is probably because I know a bad Cerys.

not keen on Hawys but like Dilys if I block out the old woman association (don't think I can block it out enough to use it though)

I like Cerys, I think it's a very pretty name without being too girly.

Dilys and Nerys are nice too.

Of those two, I prefer Cerys.
What about Ceri? Or Sian? Eluned? Mari (I love that name)?
My Welsh teacher was called Enfis - it means Rainbow, which is lovely, but I don't think it sounds very nice. And I have a relative called Heulwen - sunshine. Again, nice meaning, doesn't sound great imo.

Prefer Carys, mainly because it is the name of one of my lovely nieces.

I like them both and when we had dd3, we chose Carys as I preferred Carrie to Cerrie if people (as they always do!) wanted to shorten it.

My fave Welsh name is Nia (that's why DD1 is Nia 0

I love Cerys, that would have been ds had he been a dd, I've always loved Ceri as a nn.
Also like Enfys, Deryn and Delith.

Prefer cerys

I like Carys better I think it sounds softer, and I used to look after a beautiful Carys.
What about Seren, Megan, Bronwen or Lowri.

I prefer Cerys. What about Morwenna if you're not keen on either though?
