  Bardic name
A bardic name is a pseudonym used, in Wales, by poets and other artists, especially those involved in the eisteddfod[?] movement.
The term, "bard", originally referred to minstrels and poets of the middle ages, who might be itinerant or attached to a wealthy household.
However, the use of so-called bardic names became a conceit following the re-invention of medieval tradition by Iolo Morganwg[?].

 On the Mechanics of the Bardic Arts within the SCA
Bardic Arts are recognized generally as recited poetry, recited prose (see note 1) a cappella song (solo or chorus) and accompanied song (solo or chorus).
Bardic Arts are more than just the means for the perpetuation of the values and myths of the culture; they can be the force which shapes and creates those values and myths.
In Bardic Arts I believe the viewpoint tends to be more pronounced, simply because the narrative tends to use vocabulary or voice which, implicitly or explicitly, pass judgement or take a stand on what a character has done.

 Dylan Thomas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dylan Thomas's middle name, "Marlais", came from the bardic name of his uncle, the Unitarian minister, Gwilym Marles (whose real name was William Thomas).
His vivid and often fantastic imagery was a rejection of the trends in 20th Century verse: while his contemporaries gradually altered their writing to serious topical verse (political and social concerns were often expressed), Thomas gave himself over to his passionately felt emotions, and his writing is often both intensely personal and fiercely lyrical.
Thomas, in many ways, was more in alignment with the Romantics than he was with the poets of his era (Auden and Eliot, to name but two).

 Lady Llanover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The heiress to the Llanover estate, Augusta became the wife of Benjamin Hall the younger (who gave his name to "Big Ben").
Lady Llanover was greatly influenced by the local bard, Thomas Price, who taught her the Welsh language; she took the bardic name, "Gwenynen Gwent".
Her interest in costume led her to standardise the design of the Welsh national costume, an action for which she has subsequently been criticised.

 The Most Efficient And Informal Bardic Competition
I was assigned a few years ago to run a bardic competition on Saturday night at Outlandish, but to make it as fast as possible because it would be a strain on the drummers to wait too long before they could drum again.
As the contest continues, you'll only announce the name of the piece once, and then as you know the number is coming up (they've already been told to make ready) you can put the number on the corner of the entry card.
Another way to run a bardic is to just declare who the judges are in advance and remind people that any judging will be subjective, that the judges cannot objectively choose "the best" piece, but will choose those they find most pleasing.

 Concerning the Name Myrddin
The name Myrddin is normally encountered as the Welsh equivalent of Merlin, the name of a wizard associated with Arthur's court.
Subsequently to this event, the name Caerfyrddin is given the etymology "Myrddin's castle" (caer + myrddin) -- an etymology that is demonstrably spurious (the second element derives from Brythonic Moridunum, which appears in Roman records).
There is no evidence to suggest that Myrddin (or any of its variants) was the name of any actual historic person in the medieval period, nor is there any evidence that once the name had been created for the Arthurian literary character it was subsequently brought into ordinary use during the pre-1600 period.

Though outshone by the memory of his father Edward Williams, (better known by his Welsh bardic name of Iolo Morganwg,) Taliesin Williams was a key figure in his own right in the Welsh linguistic and cultural revival of the late 1700s and early 1800s.
Anxious to present the nation with a full body of native literature, Iolo sometimes fleshed out his discoveries with additions of his own, and sometimes, as scholars were beginning to suspect, produced outright forgeries, presenting his own creations as medieval bardic poetry.
In the process he unwittingly perpetuated some of his father’s forgeries, the last of which would not be sorted out by scholars for another century.

 retallack
The names Loonois and Morrois of the classical 12th century romance of Tristan and Isolde, could thus be the Lothian and Moray regions of Scotland, respectively (Eisner, 1969).
Because of this and its dark color Acton (1995) argues that the name may be a corruption of "Ore Stone", but this is a sedimentary rock without ore. I prefer to regard the slate spine as the Hore Stone, with its old Cornish meaning of "ram stone".
The name Retallick is in St Hilary church records only as far back as 1824 (K. Retallick, 1998b), and it could be that the westward spread of Retallacks into Cornwall only reached this far by the 19th century.
