Caergrawnt gets its name from Welsh caer (fort) a word used for many English county towns founded by Romans (most of which have the suffix -c(h)ester), and grawnt the Welsh form of the River Granta, which also gives its name to Grantchester, which would also be the literal English translation of Caergrawnt.

    That's the kind of metadata that makes it so much easier, at least for me, to remember the name of a town in Welsh. Diolch!
