In the Welsh language, the city's title is spelled Wrecsam . It is one of several places across the country that could face a change, including tourist towns Barry and Caerphilly, which may soon be known as Barri and Caerfilli .

If the petition proves successful, Wrexham would be the club most affected by such a change. Championship teams Cardiff City and Swansea City, plus Wrexham's League Two rivals Newport County, do not face the same uncertainly as the Welsh names of those three cities are deemed too different from their English spellings.

Who employs these people, have they nothing more useful to do with their time?
Caerffili (get it right) is a tourist town? Bloody hell.

But that’s how the Senedd works. They don’t like successful businesses in Wales. Much better for Wales to be an impoverished victim.

We’re already using the Welsh name of the ground STōK Cae Ras.

Lots of misunderstanding on this one.

If we want to maintain the historical accuracy on this then Wrexham is not only the most appropriate spelling but also, as others have said, reflects an interesting aspect of the origins of the town more than the Cymraeg translation of Wrecsam. Using Wrecsam only in place of Wrexham would be a mistake in my opinion (and isn't going to happen).

The discussion in the Senedd is whether there is need for recent English translations that are so pointless - like Carnarvon when Caernarfon is clearly sufficient.

This debate will always ignite the bedwetters but I see no problem in using Cymraeg only names when it is obvious.

As mentioned earlier for what I understand the earliest Cymraeg versions of Wrexham are actually Gwregsam or Gwrecsam and I think that is much cooler anyway. But for me even when I write in Cymraeg I usually write Wrexham but have no issue with anyone using either.

The Bannau Brycheiniog/Eryri developments in recent times are the Park Authorities choosing to use the Cymraeg name only in their official capacity but they are not forcing any individual or private business to not use Brecon Beacons or Snowdonia. Again it is only snowflake Tory opportunists who have jumped on this to claim it is anything else as part of ongoing attempts to deflect from fact they have literally nothing else left to offer than a forced attempt to inflict victim status on their supporters who might then vote for them for their "support".

Even if the town was forced to adapt new spelling the club wouldn't have to.
They couldn't be forced to ...they'd just be wrexham from Wrecsam

For me, the takeaway here is that it only takes 1400 people to consider a policy change.

I have some ideas guys.

Who's going to tell the administrators at the Uni?
They've only just changed their name to Wrexham Uni from Glyndwr .... it'll cost them a fortune to rebrand again !
