' Personal Names and Place-Names'
T. E. Morris
The first of a series of talks in which certain characteristics of Welsh life that are not always regarded as peculiarly Welsh will be treated in not too serious a vein
Many varying influences have altered the character of Welsh personal and place-names. There is only one class of surnames in Wales-a class that contains a limited number of baptismal names used as surnames.
During the last few centuries
English names and a vast number of Biblical names introduced by Nonconformity have gradually ousted the old Welsh baptismal names.
The last fifty years have seen a marked change jn the fashion of Christian names, and many of the old classic names have been revived. Most of the place-names in Wales are essentially Welsh, and most of them have the merit of being self-explanatory.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
