The name of our village is Sully and will always remain so however the Welsh version of Sully should be Abersili not Sili as indicated on roadsigns and official documentation

The Welsh name Abersili is derived from its situation at the mouth of the rivulet Sili. Sully is perhaps a corruption of Sili, hissing water ; or of Sylwy : syl — sylhi, to gaze ; and wy, water. Some think the word is the Norse for ploughed island, and others think it is a modified form of Sulwy or Sule, a woman’s name.
