Why isn't 'Llydaw' mutated? Does that only happen immediately after the 'i'?

I'm pretty sure by "Brittany" they mean "Great Britain". I realize this website is international, but no American says "Brittany" for Great Britain, it's either the U.K., the United Kingdom, Great Britain, Britain, or England.

Edit: I also realize the United Kingdom refers to England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland all as a whole, but still, nobody says "Brittany".

Brittany's the northwestern peninsula of France. It's where Breton is spoken.
