641 Welsh Baby Names With Meanings

Selecting an ideal baby name is no cake walk. You must pick a name that doesn’t just sound rhythmic and beautiful, but also stands the test of time, like Welsh baby names.

With the red dragon on the national flag and majestic castles on the coastline, Wales has attracted a newfound interest in the recent years, thanks to its baby names. A small country in the UK and the homeland of Arthurian legends, Welsh baby names originate in the Celtic language, which has evolved to a great extent over the centuries. The mother tongue of Wales may sound a bit harsh and disjointed to the ears, but the names are poetic and roll down the tongue smoothly.

In the ancient times, Welsh people followed a patronymic naming system. Patronymics is the process of giving the child his father’s given or forename as the first name. Hence, the family name changed in the successive generations. At the turn of 15th century, the Welsh families began adopting permanent surnames, and the patronymic naming pattern ended. But the range of Welsh surnames is quite small, primarily due to the reduction in baptismal names after the Protestants Reformation. Below is MomJunction's complete list of Welsh baby names with meanings for both boys and girls. Have a look!
