Shall I visit Wales?

Jump to last reply

At my rapidly advancing age I of course do not know how much more travel time (and money) I have left. My maiden name was Jones, and my father's mother's maiden name was Lloyd (hence my father, Lloyd Jones) so I have always wanted to visit Wales although not sure just where my Welsh forebears emigrated from.
My question is, am I the only one intimidated by pronouncing Welsh place names? While I am sure no nice Welsh person would laugh in my face, at the same time I do not wish to make a fool of myself. So far I have done pretty well with Irish but those Welsh names (can I buy a vowel?) frighten me.
Can someone reassure me?
