Reply to: Best book of Welsh, Scottish, Cornish names? by annabluebell
The reliable books in Welsh, Scottish and Cornish names are not very extensive if you compare them to books in English, German, French or Spanish names, but there are some good resources.

Welsh names

The best resource is the online dictionary of Welsh names by Iain Ó hAnnaid:

He offers very accurate spelling, etymological and historical information and phonetic transcriptions (IPA).

Besides that, there are two very good books:

Enwau Cymraeg i Blant / Welsh Names for Children, by Heini Gruffudd, Y Lolfa
Welsh Names for your Children, by Meic Stephens, St David's Press

Scottish Names

Ainmean Chloinne. Schottish Gaelic Names for Children, by Peadar Morgan, Taigh na Teud Music Publishers

Cornish names

Names for the Cornish, by Christopher Bice, The Lodenek Press
