Closed petition Use only Welsh names for places in Wales.

In a spirit of respect for Wales as its own nation with its own history and culture; and as a mark of acknowledgement concerning some of the cultural oppression that has historically been inflicted on Wales and her language and culture.
English names might initially continue to be used by some out of habit but in all official avenues and in both spoken and written media, the original Welsh names for places in Wales should be used.

More details

Following moves concerning the names of Eryri and Bannau Brycheiniog, we consider it an opportune moment to move to using only the Welsh names for places in Wales.
