This is my name and I used to hate it but now I love it. It's unique and as I live in Essex there is no-one else I know who has the same name! However there is no known nickname to shorten it and I get so angry when people can't say it right, it's said how it's spelt ang-ha-rad.

One of my friends is called Angharad, but everyone shortens it to Anga (pronounced as spelt!) so I think I've found a solution to your nickname problem.

Welsh pronunciation is simply 'Ang-HA-red' (no long A's).

Love this name! It's my best friend's sister's name. She often goes by "Angie" (pronounced AN-jee), so there's a possible nickname; it is a bit ponderous for everyday usage at full-length, though very pretty.

The lovely Maureen O'Hara played a character by this name in "How Green Was My Valley" in the 1940's.

It sounds like the name of a strong, mature girl or woman. Traditional and very Welsh. Beautiful on any woman of any age.

As a Welsh speaker named Angharad I can confirm that the name's correct meaning is either greatly loved one or deserving of love.

This was almost my mother's name, but in a German Lutheran family it didn't go over very well. I love this name, but I too have found that a lot of people can't pronounce it right. It's ahng-HAR-ad. I know a family that pronounces it ANG-guh-herd - ughhh!

Anchoret is a much prettier variation. Many Christian saints were anchorites who removed themselves from the world to focus on their spirituality. I think Anchoret Bliss or Anchoret Lux would be beautiful.
