This seems unnatural. I'm pretty sure that hogyn is a Northern word, whereas bachgen is more Southern, and that o is Northern "he" and e is Southern "he", so hogyn ydy e seems to be mixing the two up...

hogyn ydy o

bachgen yw e

They seem to be more natural.

I stared at it before clicking "check", wondering if it would ding me for choosing "Hogyn yw o", because of the mix of dialects.

I wonder if there are towns where all of these combinations are standard.

I think you can choose, but fluent little kids might get confused.
