Song of the day – Al Lewis Band ft. Sarah Howells – “Heulwen O Hiraeth” (Sunrise of longing).

This is my favourite song by Al Lewis, I don’t understand its lyrics fully, but I love it even just for its sound. And Sarah Howells is also great.

And by the way, as a name geek I can’t not make this digression, I wouldn’t be myself if I wouldn’t make it. Don’t you think Heulwen makes such a brilliant Welsh girl name? I have no idea if it’s in use there and I don’t think it could be usable anywhere else, it’s pronounced pretty differently from how it’s written (like HAYL-wen) so not the wisest choice in any other country, but… I might use it in any of my stories, or wherever else it could be possible. Well if this idea seems weird for you, I really had more odd name ideas. Like I’ve heard a word gwanwyn (Welsh for spring), thought “WOW! Such a great name it could be!”, and then got to know there is a word gwenwyn as well and thought it’s even better. Only that I didn’t know what it means and felt pretty disappointed when I got to know it means “poison”. Ughhh… What a pity! But still a great name for a witch or something. 😀

But I think that’s definitely enough about me and my crazy name ideas, here’s the song:
