Welsh Names

Popular Welsh names for boys and girls

Top Welsh Baby Names

Although the native language of Wales can sound disjointed and even harsh, Welsh names are very often smooth and poetic. Welsh baby names cannot be overlooked if you like the musical, magical rhythm of traditional Celtic influences. Naming any baby is a special process that many see as an important factor in defining your child’s personality as they grow up. Be sure to choose a name that not only sounds beautiful and poetic now, but also will last the test of time as your baby grows up.

Welsh names are a great place to look for those looking for a soft and original name with an original Ancient British feeling. Although Welsh names often contain many consonants, the pronunciation is more than likely soft and will roll off the tongue with ease.

Many of the older, more traditional welsh baby names have a direct meaning, so finding a baby name fitting for your child can be simple and fun.

Many Welsh names originate from Celtic language, and have evolved and changed over the centuries. For this reason it is a common trait for groups of Welsh names to be very similar with only one letter different, so be sure to not only check out the meaning but also make sure the word is pleasing to the eye too.
