I am trying to:
I want month names to display in the correct language when displaying posts and other CPTs. For example, in English a date should display as '11 Jan 2019', but in Welsh it should display as '11 Ion 2019'.

I have Welsh installed as a language in WordPress, and the and cy.po files are successfully in the /wp-content/languages/ folder, but the Welsh names still refuse to show up. I have checked cy.po and the month names are correctly translated in their full version and three-letter versions.

The code in the themes to display the name is get_the_date('M') . I have tried with get_the_date('F') to check that the issue isn't limited to the three-letter version of the name, but with 'F' as the date format, the full month name still shows up in English.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see:
Welsh names for months, e.g. 22 Mai 2019

Instead, I got:
English names for months, e.g. 22 May 2019
