Could it also be 'Mae gan i ci'?

No. Two things, as shown in the examples and explanations in the notes for this section on 'Possession':

  • Mae gen i... - Not * gan i
  • This pattern requires a soft mutation of ci -> gi if you put gyda fi/gen i in front of ci

Correct versions:

  • Mae [gen i/gyda fi] gi
  • Mae ci [gen i/gyda fi]
