This generally means "Welsh-speaking Wales" -- a reference to those areas of the country where the Welsh language is commonly spoken, although sometimes people say "Welsh Wales" when they simply mean those parts of the country which look and feel "very Welsh".It's a translation of the Welsh phrase Cymru Cymraeg. But note that Welsh has two words for "Welsh".Cymraeg means Welsh by language (Welsh-speaking, written in Welsh, etc.).Cymreig means Welsh by nature (Welsh-born or descended, made in Wales, etc.)Thus:-- llyfr Cymraeg : a Welsh book (i.e. a book in Welsh)-- caws Cymreig : Welsh cheese (because cheese cannot speak any language!)

Not all names used in the English-speaking world have Welsh forms. 'Clint' sounds more American than Welsh and Hacken is an English surname from Derbyshire and Nottingham.
