Aber Cleddyf
AKA Aber Deu Gleddyf, Aber Cleddyv
Welsh: "Mouth of the Sword [River]"

According to Culhwch ac Olwen, it is the location of the bitch of Rhymi, a magical wolf (who may be a human in disguise, much like Twrch Trwyth) and her two cubs. According to Mabon ap Modron, the capturing of the wolf will be the easiest of their quests to fulfill. The text specifically seems to refer to the estuary at Milford Haven. However, there are a number of rivers named "Cleddyf".
