Does this literally translate into ' sea -animal'?

That seems to be the origin of the word. If you look words up in Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru, that usually has notes on etymology.

(Be careful when using the GPC for translations, though, as it includes historical and obscure meanings as well as common contemporary meanings.)
