I don't trust that site. I know for a fact that Gweneth is a deriviation of Gwyndydd, which is in itself means "white day".
It is tied to the Arthurian character of the same name, later Latinized as "Ganieda", the twin sister of Merlin. Her naming implies that she and Merlin were born in winter's time, coinciding with the solstice and the portended arrival of the Sun Child, the savior of the land who would see to Spring's return. (It's why the Church was able to integrate such solstice festivals into the concept of Christmas?shoehorning Jesus' birth into the cycle and calling him one of these Sun Childs).
Dogs rock. Shut up.
