See, the Irish went to Wales sometime in the 5th Century AD and stole all their vowels. This left the poor Welsh having to name their kids things like Dfydd, while the Irish began tossing them about with wild abandon (like Aoife) . . . My other theory is that written Gaelic is a joke the Irish played on the Romans.

"A-I-E-D-O-I...."
