Meaning & History

A village in northwest Wales. The name means 'Gelert's grave', from Welsh bedd, 'grave' & Gelert, whose identity is a subject of debate.

According to legend, Gelert was a dog belonging to Llewellyn the Great, Prince of Gwynedd.

Gelert, however, was more likely a 7th Century Welsh saint.
