Welsh pronunciation please - Brân Gannaid

Postby Brân Gannaid » 21 Sep 2013, 05:09

I'm back!

Now seeking the correct pronunciation of Brân Gannaid.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome back!

The 'roof' over the a in Bran extends the a . So it is a long a. Although, saying that, the roof may not be necessary. I've seen bran spelt without the roof.

Gannaid is pronounced gan- ide

Hope that this helps. :)
