[Editor: Welsh Surnames, by T.J. and Prys Morgan, (Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 1985) is an excellent source for medieval Welsh names; SCA College of Arms members often refer to it as M&M. The authors cited numerous sources by abbreviation but did not provide full bibliographical information for all those sources. Mistress Tangwystyl has filled in some of that missing information.]

Here's a list I drew up back when I first started using M&M. It doesn't include the specifics on all the Bulletin of the Board of Celtic Studies articles.

An asterisk preceding an item indicates that the entire contents appear to be pre-1600 or thereabouts; a question mark indicates that this is probably the case.
