Actually, the Welsh double "ll" is more closely rendered in English as "cl" (and the "r" is rolled slightly), so "cleer" would be more authentic. There are a couple of examples well-pronounced on Forvo.
Personally, I love it -- if I'd had a son, it was a close contender for a middle name (but then, I live in Wales, where it's in quiet but general use and isn't an eyebrow raiser!). Rhys Ifans brother is called Llyr -- he's also an actor.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

"Nook of names," I am big fan of yours and read your blog with great fascination, not to mention your book. So excited you have joined this site!
I always wanted to ask how you came to study the ancient Near East. I had a vague theory that you read ASNC at Cambridge but obviously Akkadian isn't part of that course...Blade, MD
