Hello Alyn, welcome to our Jurassic Park.
Be careful, some of the dinosaurs bite.
That is a pretty looking name you have, I wonder how it sounds like.
Is it old English, celtic, saxon?
And some of the ageing Kent based dinosaurs are Doppelgängers :D

Welcome from Southern California!!!!
Welcome to APUG from Richmond Va. Some of my relatives from my mother's side are from Wales.
I studied for half a year in Bangor in 1993, as part of the Erasmus exchange programme. Still have very pleasant memories of that time and the incredible landscape...

Croeso... from Michigan Alyn. I've spent a lot of time in North Wales in my life as my Mother's family comes from near Wrexham. What town or village?
Croeso from western PA (my dad's family has origins in Pontypool in the south).
Diolch yn fawr, cheers everyone, seems there is a good spread of people from around the world then, but nice to see a fair few of you have some connection to Wales, eispecially our northern part.
Hi to all of you from B.C., it's a beautiful place, I have family there, in Vancouver and Victoria, was out there last year.
I'm from near Conwy town, although I'm about to move to Chester untill christmas. Got a teaching placement in Llangollen, I'm doing my teacher trainnig in Aberystwyth this year.
@arigram: My name is pronounced Al-in, not entirely sure of it's origins, I know there's a river in Deeside called "Alyn", most people assume it's of Welsh origin, I don't know. My parents picked it because they liked the Welsh name Alun (pronounced Al-in) but hated the way english people pronounce it Al-un, from that I asume it to be an English phoenetic adaptation of the Welsh name.
