International place-names

You can find lists of country and territory names on Welsh Government’s BydTermCymru site.

These are the English and Welsh names for sovereign countries, UK Crown Dependencies and UK Overseas Territories. These lists reflect the Geographical Names Index found on the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) website.

The Welsh-language names are the result of a joint standardisation work undertaken by the Welsh Government's Translation Service and the Welsh Language Commissioner's Place-name Standardisation Panel.

Contact us with any enquiries about the Welsh names of international places.
