What do WLinux and Benedict Cumberbatch have in common? They're both fond of Pengwin

FWIW, I see gwyn listed in Bing and Google's Welsh dictionaries as "fat" as well as "white" - but since it's not listed in the better Welsh dictionaries, such as the one maintained and updated at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, I don't see that as lexical evidence of a Latin-inspired pinguis remnant in 16th century Welsh. Welsh speakers, if you know better, and you think Google/Bing inclusion wasn't a data burp emitted by Google's RNN, please chime in!
