Welsh naming traditions

Were there traditions on how families selected names for their children? For example, first born boy was named after paternal grandfather, first born daughter after maternal grandmother, and on down the line. I am going crazy trying to follow the right lines. Major case in point I have christening records for 4 children two families. Both fathers and mothers had the same first names, baby girls had same name and baby boys had same name, and same sir names for both. Sure makes tracking down the kin difficult. Thanks
