I'd guess this is either derived from or a cognate of "frock"?

So what's the word 'frog' in welsh? I know the German, polish and Spanish word already so I need this to fill in the gap :)

The first option suggested by google translate: llyffant.

You'll usually hear llyffant for "frog" up north. In the south, the word is broga. Southerners use llyffant for "toad"!

Does anybody know the reason for the double f in 'ffrog'? I was just wondering...

Like English words of and off, a single f sounds like a v, and and a double ff sounds like an f
