I am doing some research which is taking me into the Glamorganshire area and have come across the name GOMER as a first name not a surname. I understand that it has a meaning = Welsh. So would people really have baptised their children with the name of welsh ?
The relative I started looking for had a middle name of Gomer so I am not sure if it was after a relative or a relatives surname.
Any info most appreciated as its just a general enquiry really
