Both the internet and fy ngeiriadur have failed me with this one.
My great great great grandfather came from Wales to America, so naturally I often need to know how to say “great great great grandfather,” in Welsh. I’ve found no easy way to say it. Lately I’ve been getting by with " y taid fy nhaid" which has a sort of ring to it, but falls a generation short.
Anyone know the proper Welsh way of referring to ancestors beyond your grandfathers?
For sure you can go hen hen hen - everyone will understand, so it works - but I never miss an opportunity to share gorhendaid (which is also, rather lovelily, the name of one of the hobbits in the extended family trees in the Lord of the Rings…:-)).
