Possible Confusions

Tre in welsh means 'town' or 'homestead'.

Confusion sometimes arises because the word appears regularly in front of the name of towns and villages and sometimes becomes incorporated into the name of the town itself.

For example Treborth indicates the town of Borth and Tre-Taliesin indicates the town of Taliesin.

Possible Confusions

Llangynfelyn, Llancynfelyn and Llancynfelin are all the same place.

Llangynfelyn is a village to the North of Aberystwyth, Wales, but the name is also used for the parish of Llangynfelyn.

The parish of Llangynfelyn includes the villages of Llangynfelyn, Tre-Taliesin, Tre'rddôl, Craig-y-Penrhyn and Goitre.
