I've also seen this word spelled 'mecanydd'. Is this an alternate spelling or a North-South difference?

mecanic seems to be the generally used informal word, although mecanig or mecanydd are the 'proper' formal dictionary words.

There are far more, and more important, differences between informal and formal registers of Welsh than there are between the 4-5 main Welsh dialects.
