I thought that 'Gorffennaf' was spelt with double 'n'.

Yes, 'Gorffennaf' is the correct spelling and is accepted as a best answer.

Occasionally it is mis-spelt with only one 'n'.

We can't change this until the course leaves beta.

There is though much debate about the role of double consonants in the Welsh language, especially double 'n', since there is no linguistic reason why words would have a single or double 'n', since the meaning and pronunciation are the same.
