Llewelyn Fawr was a famous Welsh prince who united Wales in the thirteenth century. Here Be Dragons, by Sharon Kay Penman, is a very good historical fiction account of his life.

I think the name itself is very cool, but I'm a bit confused as to how it's pronounced. I've read that the double l in Welsh can be approximated by saying 'h' and 'l' at the same time, but I'm not sure how the rest is said. I like it, but I'm sure that in any place other than Wales (or with anyone who is not familiar with the Welsh language) the pronunciation would be completely butchered.

I found a website that explains the pronunciations of Welsh names, and their advice for pronouncing the 'll' sound is to "put your tongue in the 'l' position and try to hiss".

Living in the US I've always heard it pronounced like "Lou-ah-lin" but I'm sure it's different in Welsh. Either way I think it's a great old-timey, manly name.
