I notice that many Welsh cities start with Aber. Is there a translation for this word?

Where a river flows into another, or into the sea. According to the lesson's tips and notes. There are also many other interesting parts of names that you should check out.

It's the same as the "mouth" suffix in English: Avonmouth, Dartmouth, Exmouth.

And Teignmouth too. Thanks for including these West Country names. Another one - Sidmouth.

Not just Welsh - Aberdeen, and Aberfoyle in Scotland, and the cognate form in Gaelic is inbhir, usually Anglicized as Inver, as in Inbhir Nis / Inverness.
