Sorry, came in late on this one (been off the site for a while!).

It's worth reminding any non-Welsh speaker that the starts of words can mutate, and so just looking up elements that make up the names in a standard dictionary etc, which doesn't include possible mutations, often doesn't work.

For example. Wales = Cymru. In Wales = yn Gymru

I love Welsh! Big Grin
