Quoting "T. Michael Keesey" <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
I know Celtic grammar has different word order than most of us are
used to, but I can't make any sense of "Valley the Fountain". And does
this mean that _Pantydraco_ means "valley the dragon"?
I believe, in a sequence of two noun phrases, the second is interpreted
as the possessor of the first: hence, 'valley of the fountain/spring'.
"Pant y ddraig" would indeed be 'valley of the dragon'.
