Well, for the uninitiated (and unWelsh) like myself, I always assumed
"Wynne" was part of a surname, a double-barrelled name without the hyphen‹I
understand it's a family name, so I do think the confusion is understandable
(or perhaps I'm merely being an ignorant colonial). I've never known whether
to shelve her under W or J.

And, of course, there's Canadian writer Tim Wynne-Jones to further addle we
ignorant folk...
