According to a Welsh translator on the web, Bear is Arwedda and Knight is Farchog. But it does depend on the area and the context.

You need to be careful if you're just asking for the words as the order could well be different in Welsh. Unlike English, adjectives usually (but not always) folllow nouns in Welsh so you could get it the wrong way round if you just ask for the individual words - best to ask for the whole phrase. It looks like there's at least two of us on here, plus a boyfriend who could help. Some suggestions
Brenin (King)
Dewin (Wizard - but sounds stonger in Welsh!) pronounce the 'e' in both as you would in "met" so it's De-win rather that dew-in.
Bonheddwr (Gentleman, again sounds stronger in Welsh) "bon" rhymes with "con", "hedd" pronounced like the first syllable of "heather" and "wr" pronounced "oor" - try to roll the 'r.
Tywysog (Prince) Pronounce it "toe-wuss-sog" and you'll be close enough.

Nutwood could translate as Coedcnau - coed= trees cnau=nuts. Pronounce the "oe" of "Coed" as you would the "oi" in "oil" and the "Cnau" to rhym with "eye". A few commentators would struggle with that!
Arth Coedcnau might be nice - Nutwood Bear!
