Welsh names

One of my Welsh g+grandfathers was Robert R. Hughes b. 1821 Abergele, Denbigh and another was Evan O. Davies b. 1807 Llanon, Cardigan. I wonder if the middle name was the name of the father to carry on the naming system that was not used in the English records. If this were so then Robert's father would be a Robert or a Richard and Evan's father would be Oliver or Olwyn. This might help me find Robert's and Evan's fathers.

Robert R. Hughes' sons were Joseph R., Edward R., John R., Hugh Robert and David Lloyd who was named for his mother's father.

Evan O. Davies' children were Thomas, David O., Ann O., Elizabeth O., Thomas E., Jenkin, Mary O. and Margaret. The two children without the O died as infants.

Any comments?
