Honoured names

Sir: Skinflint (January 11) perpetuates the myth of Welsh comicality. May I assure him there is nothing aberrant about the names Llewellyn, leuan, Meredyth and Mair. Good, honest ' Welsh names, they do not merit mockery in England. And why "forenames"? We still claim to be a christian society.
