I like the name Talfryn. Various websites and baby name books show 2 possible pronunciations, roughly:
2 syllable - "Tal - vryn"
3 syllable - "Tal - eh - vryn"
I found a site that had sound, and that used the 3 syllable pronunciation. I'm wondering though if anyone knows a Talfryn in real life, and how he pronounces it. Thanks in advance!
a single f sounds like a v
ff makes the f sound (as in flower)
I would pronounce it Tal-vrin.
I can see that a different local dialect might make it Tal-eh-vrin but most Welsh people, on reading the name, would go with the 2 syllable pronounciation.
Living in Russia
I agree with welsh.
Have never known a Talfryn, but sounds like combination of tal and bryn so tall hill? thats my guess anyway.
if I'm right then the correct pronunciation would be tal-vrin
That's a beautiful name. I've never heard it either. My husband is Welsh, I am American and I am just 6 weeks pregnant and I've been obsessing over Welsh names for babies even long before I met him. There are some beautiful names to choose from.
Hi, I'm new to the site, so hi! But couldn't resist answering this one. I'm with Welsh - I'm not Welsh but spent 3 years there, which was long enough to get some idea on pronunciation from my Welsh friends. So I'd go with Tal-vrin as well. I've never heard it before, but it's beautiful.
