Subject: Lloegr/England?
Ydy unrhywun yn gwybod beth ydy'r geirdarddiad Cymraeg am 'Lloegr'? Mae'r iaithiau Celtaidd eraill i gyd yn galw Lloegr, yn eu gwanhanol ffurfiau 'gwlad y Sacson' e.e:

Llydaweg - Bro-Saoz (Breton)
Cernyweg - Pow Sows (Cornish)
Gwyddeleg - Sasana (Irish)
Gaeleg - Sasainn (Gaelic)
Manaweg - Sostyn (Manx)

Oes y fath beth geiriadur geirdarddiad Cymraeg?

Does anybody know what the Welsh etymology for 'England' is? All the other Celtic languages call England, in their various forms 'land of the Saxons' eg.(see above)
Is there such a thing as a Welsh etymology dictionary?
