Comments for GWLADUS:

I think this name may be related to the Welsh word 'gwlad' which means 'country'. It doesn't seem too far-fetched, so it's a possibility. [noted -ed]

My Welsh grandmother's name was Gwladys, which seems to be a variant of this using the more common Y from Gladys.
The name of the Roman Catholic saint Gwladys (who was a queen of Gwynllyg in South Wales) seems to vary between the U and the Y spelling depending on the source.
There is a French golfer who also uses the Y spelling.

I would hazard they are interchangeable, but that the Y spelling is more modern.
