What does CAER mean?
- In the Welsh language, caer means "fortress", "fort" or "citadel"/"castle". Caer is the Welsh name for the city of Chester, situated in northwest England. It also forms, as a prefix, the Welsh equivalent of -caster, -cester and -chester in place names. The English word derives from Latin castrum "fortified post", more common in the plural castra meaning "military camp" and is the equivalent of castell in Welsh. The word caer itself derives from the Brythonic word *kagro-, as does the word cae. Examples in Wales include: ⁕Caerdydd - Fortress of Taf; ⁕Caergybi - Fortress of Cybi; ⁕Caernarfon - Fortress in Arfon; ⁕Caerffili - Fortress of Ffilli. ⁕Caerwent - fortress of Gwent.
