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.

Name of the mother of Princess Eilonwy of the House of Llyr in Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles.

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.

I hate this name! Most people can't say and/or spell it right.

Angharad is the full first name of the heroine of The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. She goes by the nickname 'Harry' most of the time.

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.

I am not Welsh but I watch a lot of Youtube videos (I'm super qualified to comment on this, of course) and I have also heard it pronounced ahng-HAH-rad.
