Angharad (600AD)

"Based on Rhydderch's assigned date, she would presumably belong roughly to the late-mid 6th century... she appears to be the earliest known instance of the name Angharad, although Bartrum (WCD) lists a near explosion of women with the name in the 9-10th century, and it was extremely popular in the later medieval period."
