Meaning of the baby name GWENHWYFACH.


GWENHWYFACH.  Arthurian.  The same as Welsh Gwenhwyvach (q.v.), a name said to imply "high lady." (Britannia Antiqua, Poste, 1857)

    Gwenhwyfach or Gwenhwyach, the wife of Medrawt ap Llew ap Cynfarch.  A quarrel about two nuts (says Tudur Aled) between Gwenhwyfar (verch Ogyrfan Gawr), King Arthur's Queen, and this Gwenhwyfach (Tr. 47) gave Medrawd a colour of dethroning Gwenhwyfar (Tr. 46), King Arthur having left him lieutenant of Britain while he followed his Gaulish conquest. (Tr. 90.)  This quarrel or palfawd (i.e., a box in the ear) about two nuts was the occasion of the civil war between King Arthur and Medrawd, and both were killed at Cad Gamlan. (Tr. 47.) (Celtic Remains, Morris-Evans, 1878)
