From St. Asaph's, City Line, to Lampeter, Lancaster County, we find Welsh names sprinkled throughout the Main Line and beyond. But how did these curious names get here, how do we pronounce them, and how do we know which ones actually date back to Pennsylvania's Welsh Quaker history? Which ones were added in the 19th century to sound romantic and attract real estate development?
