Discover what’s in a name with Hafal client’s new website

Hafal member and service user Darryl Neil Stevens has just launched a brand new educational website that offers a fascinating look at Welsh history by tracing the origins of names.

Darryl, who studied Welsh language, literature and sociolinguistics at university, has designed his free and educational web resource to be an invaluable portal for anyone studying Middle Welsh literature including the Mabinogion, delving into the roots of Welsh sayings, or finding the origins of their surnames.
