Dewi is the Welsh form of David, Dewi Sant (Saint David) is the patron saint of Wales. Dewi Lingo is a play on words as it sounds similar to Duolingo.

As ibisc said, there are many forms of David. Most languages have a few names corresponding with the same name in another language.

Is the pronunciation on the sound for "Helo" correct? My welsh friends say it more like "HA-luu" as opposed to "he-luh". Or is it a regional difference, I'm in North Wales

Huh, I thought Dewi was pronounced like "ow" (as in, I've hurt myself). I suppose it's more subtle than that.
