Welsh Names

Welsh names have attracted new interest in recent years, both within Wales and beyond. Some Welsh baby names are being newly discovered by parents throughout the English-speaking world, with choices such as Bryn, Owen, Maddox, Dylan, and Evan climbing the international popularity lists. In Lord of the Rings, the Welsh girls' name Arwen sparked a fashion for wen-ending names, while previously unknown Welsh baby names such as Carys, Seren, and Bowen are achieving more widespread use.

A beautiful yet tiny country, Wales has its own distinctive language and culture and a lovely roster of its own baby names. Here, our complete list of Welsh names for girls and Welsh names for boys.
