‘Neb Ond Ffyliaid’ – a series of talks on Welsh placenames

Live and interactive sessions, with Meirion MacIntyre Huws, on the Hunaniaith Facebook page.

Placenames and their origins 

According to the Prof. John Morris Jones, only fools would venture to explain placenames. Fools or not there is a lot of interest in the subject. 

These are session, held in Welsh, are aimed at those who are interested in the subject of place names but don’t know where to start. The sessions will begin with the basics, e.g, Bryn, Llan, Pant and Llwyn and will progress to more complicated names. We’ll learn how the language itself has changed and how that has moulded the Welsh place names of today. The sessions will last around 40 minutes.

October – 28th, 2021 

November – 25th, 2021 

December – No session

January – 20th, 2022
