Hello

Have to agree with Bluesqueqk below, having previously opted for Gwyliwr meaning Sentinel and Hwylio being Sailing therefore Gwyliwr Hwylio best translation is Sailing Sentinel.
Cennady Frenhines is fairly straight forward but clever. Cennad is messenger and Y Frenhines is The Queen, therefore given the context Cennad y Frenhines is The Queen's Messenger.
Cyfiawnder means Justice
Merch o Obaith best translation is Daugher of Hope
Cleddyf means sword, possibly a falchion
Gwyliwr could mean viewer, watcher, watchman or sentinel, I'd suggest the latter.
Athrawes is the feminine form of teacher, appropriate given although Merlin appears male, Nimue is a woman.
Dialydd Mab can translate as avenging son
Yr Alban is Welsh for Scotland.
Chwaer is sister in Welsh, iau is junior or younger; perhaps little sister
Ganieda is a sorceress / witch and Merlin's half sister; Cysgodol is shadow.
Dagr is dagger and Cudd is hidden

Gwyliwr Hwylio = Sailing Sentinel
Cennady Frenhines. = The Queen's Messenger
Cyfiawnder = Justice
Merch o Obaith = Daugher of Hope
Merlin Athrawes = Merlin the teacher
Dialydd Mab = Avenging son
Nimue Alban = Nimue the Scot
Nimue Chwaeriau = Nimue's little sister
Ganieda Cysgodol = Shadow Witch or Shadow Sister
Dagyr Cudd = Hidden Dagger
Cleddyf = Sword
Gwyliwr = Sentinel

I see that you included Merch O Obaith but I do not see Cennady Frenhines.

So far I made it to page 110 on my kindle version and these were the only two new names to contend with.


My Welsh isn't great, but cennad means messenger and Y Frenhines is The Queen. So I'd guess that the name simply means The Queen's messenger.


Thank you.

I started my first read through on Tuesday morning and finished it this afternoon.
I hope you like it as much as I did.

More later.

Don't know if you were aware but this VERY USEFUL post came unstuck. Might want to fix that since the AtSoT is so new on the shelves.
Thanks again for providing it.

Thanks again for this list...

I am re-reading and encountered Ganieda Cysgodol with a total lack of recall.
Your list had been Stuck" at the top of the forum but... noooo not any more.

As always, I found it (in the last place I looked) ;-)

Don't know about you, but I always find stuff the last place I look. Sometimes it takes a while, though. :lol:
