Actually, "Gwareg" is pretty close to how I'd pronounce "Gouarec" in French. But the comparison to Welsh is more apt than you perhaps realise: they're both Brythonic Celtic languages, and thus pretty close to each other. When visiting Brittany a few years ago, I found it very odd to be served in shops by people with Welsh-looking names on their name-badges!

Also, there are still some first-language Welsh speakers out there! They don't just have the signs to annoy visitors.
