Shw mae!
I wonder if it's possible to translate Mountain of Sand into Welsh and use it as a surname. I am going to play a delegate from Wales (Cymru) in an upcoming roleplay and would like to be called Ioan Sandberg (My real name is Johan Eiric Martin Sandberg) but to have this name in Welsh wink.gif

Diolch yn fawr in advance!

Eiric

Mountain of Sand would be Mynydd y Tywod, I would have thought. I live near a place called Mynydd Bach y Glo "Little Mountain of Coal". But I wouldn't use it as name, not for a person anyway. Sorry.
Welsh surnames tend to be a male name that ends with 's' now. After the English enforced translation of surnames, Welsh popular surnames are names like Jones (from John), Davies (from David), Evans (from Ifan), Hughes (from Huw), Roberts (from Robert), etc.

Is there any other surname you'd consider?
