Change the spelling of my surname?

Hi, I have a Welsh surname and speak Welsh.
Would AIBU to change the spelling of my surname to the Welsh way of spelling? In a way I suppose I would be reverting an anglicisation.
That is to say; the anglicised spelling of the surname would be Lloyd but originally it would be Llwyd. Or, Tudor to Tudur, Hughes to Huws, Rees to Rhys, Griffiths to Gruffydd.
I know this may cause some stirring within some family members. But then again, it's as much my surname as it is theirs? They don't need to follow suit.
