On this page I have listed a few examples from my booklet.

All the names in this book have been complied from the names of signs that have been given to us for engraving onto Nameplates. Most of the translations have been given to us by our customers, where this has not been possible, the translations have been made by various people who have a sound knowledge of the Welsh Language.

There may be some translations that may not be right, and this could be because a farm or house has been known by a certain name for a hundred or more years, and over that period of time, mistakes could have occurred in the Welsh spelling, and in the meaning of the name.

Should you be thinking of finding a suitable name from this booklet, please be aware that I can not be responsible for any errors in this booklet or for any of the content on this site.

All I can assure you of is that all these names are in use now, or were when signs were engraved for them.
