Yes; that's one of the few inconsistencies in the orthography devised by Rev. Hazelwood back in the 1800s. b = mb, d = nd; one would think g = Ng, but no, he chose q. (g is N--I suspect maybe major Polynesian langs. were orthographized earlier, and they may have established "g" for N) c for /D/ is kinda odd too IMHO Staying on-topic... You'll note I've kashified your name; it could also be "nuton" if they first heard it from an American... Teoh: teyo Benct Philip Jonsson: filip, easy. yon-son, easy. Benct, all but impossible, sorry: penget [pENgEt]?, peñ [peN]? , pend(a)? of Span. pendi(t,c)o or Ital. pendeto. Take your pick. The recent "troll" could easily be /trol/, no meaning yet.

You could be "new toN fi liq" in Gwr, which fits nicely with their system: Clan, new - Family, toN - given, fi liq
