I literally like no names!Need ideas for Welsh Names for boy or girl.

Sep 5th, 2014, 15:16 PM   #1
Hi all, since being pregnant every name I liked I know hate. I am looking to have a a Welsh name for my littel boy or girl and I was it to be something traditional. Nothing that has been shortened or modernised in anyway.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Those names are lovely! I like loads of names, but never seem to think they are right for me.

Nerys is on our girls list. My hubby is welsh but neither of us like many "proper welsh" names!

I love Celtic names, and would try to get one if my OH wasn't ethnically Indian and thought it would be a bit too weird..

Some Welsh names from fiction books I liked - Rhodry (boy) and Eirlys (girl) - last one means Snowdrop, Eilonwy (she's a princess in that book).

Another Welsh girl's name from one book that's not quite my cup of tea but maybe someone else would find it pretty is Nia.

Or if you're looking for something fanciful - Cerridwen (girl).

My son is called Morgan, which is welsh although it has become popular as a girls name too

Hi, fellow Welshie here! I have a welsh baby names book which is full of some awful but also some beautiful names. I prefer the not so "out there" names so not sure what you'll make of these, but here's a few I quite like

Boys: Ellis, Morgan, Dylan, Idris, Steffan,

Girls: Bronwyn, Seren, Carys, Ffion, Lowri, Rhianwen
