Caerdydd: from Middle Welsh Caerdyf. Equivalent to caer (“fort”) +‎ Taf (“[River] Taff”); literally "fortified city on the River Taff". Caer is related to cae ("field") and cau ("to close, shut").

Hold on, where's the soft mutation? Or is it not required here?

"a" when it means "and" never causes a soft mutation. What it does cause is an aspirate mutations so if it were the other way around you'd have "Llundain a Chaerdydd".
