Welsh naming conventions?


Well-known member
Hi. One of my ancestors is William Parry Roberts Parry. His mother was Gwen Roberts, and his father John Parry. I'm just wondering where the other Parry in his name came from. It looks to me like these strings of surnames are quite common in Welsh names. Is there any kind of naming convention in Wales that would tell me which side it might most likely have come from? I've googled but can't find anything about it.
