Welsh llan and personal name Eurfyl which Ellis says developed into Erfyl, Urfyl although spellings with -erfyl are very late. The Saint may be a female saint Urfyl (vrvyl) recorded in 1488 , reputedly a daughter of the well-known st Padarn; Gweful is very unlikely in view of available spellings. There is a well dedicated to her (Ffynnon Erfyl) north-west of the church and an early Christian stone (of a distinct person) in the churchyard has been associated with her.
