Cymraeg (Welsh): pronunciation of Gwynllyw


Senior Member
Hi all,
I would like to know what is the correct pronunciation of Gwynllyw, the name of a saint, who was a Welsh king and religious figure. I can guess ['gwɨnɬɨu] from orthography (I don't know which syllable is stressed, but I think it's the first).
Thanks in advance and happy Easter.

    Hi Linnets
    The way you have transcribed the name above ['gwɨnɬɨu] is how I’d say the name. I’m not a Welsh speaker though, but we have some native speakers here, I’m sure they’ll give a response soon.
