Cymru = Land of fellow-countrymen, or 'Comrades'

Basically the Welsh are commies, not strangers...

It's translating the English name, not the Welsh name.

So

English = Land of Strangers
Welsh = Land of Friends.

Makes sense.

If you stick your oar in hard enough you can get out of that wet green land full of celts and into the slightly better wet green land full of celts, westland

Hmm, it says San Diego (Saint Donald) translates to "St. Heel Holder". I guess Saint Donald/Diego washed people's feet or something?
