Baby Names With A Unique Flair
Welsh baby names are becoming more popular with parents everywhere, probably due to their haunting beauty and unique spelling. If you like the name Reece, for example, kick it up a notch and go with the more intriguing Rhys, which is pronounced the same but looks cool and unique.
Welsh names can be a fun way to name your baby after a family member as well, even if you're not terribly hip on using family names for your children. Grandma Karen will be very happy to introduce her granddaughter Caron, and Grandpa Andrew will be very proud of his grandson Andras.
While their popularity is increasing, Welsh baby names aren't overly popular in the U.S., so there's less of a worry if you're concerned about your little one sharing a name with her classmates.

Choosing a Welsh name
The Welsh language is a Celtic-derived tongue spoken in Wales, England and other parts of the world. You may have noticed that quite a few of these baby names, for both boys and girls, have a -wen or -wyn component. It means "fair, blessed or white," so not only does it have a beautiful sound, it has a lovely meaning as well.
Many of the names listed here work well in the English-speaking world, and if you don't like them for a first name, many would be an excellent choice for an awesome middle name. Some of our favorites for middle names are Bryn, Vanora and Elen for girls, and Cai, Drew and Kenn for boys.
