Oh everyone would get used to the Welsh names after a few hundred years or so...
 ;D

I wouldn't normally recommend a Buzzfeed video, but this one is genuinely amusing:

Americans Pronounce Welsh Town Names: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZPhPf-0pYM

"This looks like a game of hangman that I lost"  ;D :wacko:
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

I need to have a lay down in a dark room. It's made me realise my work isn't done.
As they say at home,
See those two houses on that hill? Wel,l the middle one is mine.
Whose coat is this jacket hanging on the floor!
Wales, 400 hundred miles of coastline, all facing the sea!!!!!!

Ifor(that's pronounced Ivor. One f in Welsh has a v sound, two a f sound)

That's brilliant! I used to live in Woonsocket, RI where there's a lot of French-Canadian ancestry, and they say things like
Side by each
Throw me down the stairs my keys
Next time you cut through my yard go 'round.

I find such regional usages quite fun.  :)  Oh - and the town name is pronounced "One-socket".
