Angharad: the sound 'ngh' is a phonetic sound and the nearest you are likely to get is 'Ang: harad'.
Addiena: 'dd' is the hardest 'th' you can render - cf. 'that' Ah-thee-en-ah.
Adwen: as it sounds. Ah-dwen.
Esyllt: to make the 'll' sound you have to put your tongue where you would to say 'l' and blow. Ess-illt.
Llawella: again the 'll', only twice over. Llah-well-ah.
The only one of these unlikely to lead to trouble in the English speaking world is Adwen. I love the name Angharad, but a great friend of that name warned me never to call a daughter by it!
