Looking for correction to me translation if needed.

The key to Love
~Yr allwedd i cariad

The key
~Yr allwedd

Love key
~Caru allwedd


These are names for foals yet to be born, and altho me mate usually names her foals in gaelic, the breeding pair are both Welsh.

Diolch.

Allwedd i gariad

Allwedd

Allwedd cariad

(You can use Yr beforehand but it doesn't seem as necessary to me as it is in English. Flows well, if not better without the Yr though that doesn't make it wrong at all - if your friend is eager to use the definite article!)

I just realised that "allwedd" is feminine so "Love Key" should be "Allwedd gariad" which of course sounds similar to "Allwedd i gariad".

Therefore, I suggest "serch". This means "love" too and is a perfect synonym. So, how about "Allwedd i serch"? Sounds lovely to me as a Welsh speaker! (Serch is actually more traditional and poetic than cariad).

Diolch yn fawr, Siarls.

Altho the mutation still cought me off guard, I admit I wouldn't have guessed Love Key as being Allwedd gariad... Ahh well.
