Singer Cerys Matthews has named her first child GLENYS PEARL Y-FELIN.

The name Glenys is a traditional Welsh name originating from the Welsh word glan, meaning "pure" or "holy".

A spokesman for Warner Music UK says, "The Pearl part of the name is from the Matthews' family history, and y-Felin is Welsh for the mill, and from their family roots."

Glenys Pearl y-Felin was born on 10 August (03) weighing 3 kilograms ( 6 pounds 10 ounces).

In February, former Catatonia frontwoman Matthews, 34, married American music producer SETH RIDDLE in a chapel near her parents' home.
