Never thought I would post here, but brain is melting with name sites... fire WELSH names at me please!

We currently have Bronwyn and Emrys.

As much as DS is pleading I am not planning to call the new one Baby Gus (he did actually sob over that today blush).

Please list oodles of welsh names of both genders. I will offer many thanks but can't see me being polite enough to comment on every single name blush (but bonus points for honesty yes???)

I have looked on too many sites now and the names are all merging into one - feel like this way I can just show DH a thread of names and it will be simpler

But Bronwen is traditionally spelt with an e rather than a second y.

Flamesparrow Tue 09-Jun-09 20:28:19

DH is dyslexic - we went with the spelling that he was most happy with hmm

Aneurin (Nye for short)

ScummyMummy Tue 09-Jun-09 20:29:07

Bryn, Ioan, Daffyd, Gruffyd?

I know a Griff and a Rhys, both of which I like.

I also rather like Gus.

lol, although Gus is a good name as well.

Flamesparrow Tue 09-Jun-09 20:33:00

(Oh the currently have is as in our current DC, not on a short list).

Can't have BabyDragon's name... love it but tis the same as one of my closest friend's and I don't want the whole matching children thing

You're all very good at lists

Gus is actually growing on me too tbh, but DH is very anti
