Comments for CADWALADER:

I've also seen it spelled with two l's: Cadwallader. I think it looks nicer this way.

You might think it looks nicer with two ll's, but this would indicate an incorrect pronunciation. (The double l in Welsh is voiceless, unlike the single l in Cadwalader.)

Someone said they prefer the spelling Cadwallader. This would be pronounced wrong if said with an 'l' sound.

To say Cadwallader, the 'll' is pronounced by putting your tongue to say 'l' then blowing out. (and don't forget that all the other letters are 'hard', not 'soft)

Hope I've cleared this up for folks!

It was spelled Cadwallader in Shakespeare's "Henry V," though most likely pronounced as Cadwalader would be. Then again poor Captain Llewelyn (which was likely his real name) was called Fluellen the whole time...

The Welsh spelling is Cadwaladr.

Cool how it means "cad" (battle) which is the same origin as "Chad". This could be the long form of "Chad" everyone is looking for!
