Once, well, more than once long ago, I hated being taunted by a verse that said, "Taffi is a Welshman, Taffi is a thief..." I knew it wasn't true,but... Anyway, when I eventually learned thword 'cymryd' I was shocked! I was back in that playground! Was our whole nation labelled as 'takers'? Does anyone know the derivation of Cymru, Cymreig, Cymro, ans Cymryd?
