No. Still not right.

A Germanic word from the Proto Indo-European root *widhu, which also gives us the Celtic words in Welsh gwydd and Old Irish fíd (both of which mean tree/wood).

Welsh and Germanic are not of the same family; Welsh is from the Celtic branch of the Indo-European tree, English the Germanic.
