Thank you Sylvia
It wasn't until after send the query that I did an
internet search and found pages of references to
Pebidiog. I wondered how it had never come up before!
Such are the joys of genealogy?

According to B G Charles and his book Pembrokeshire
Place Names, Pebidiog is
formed of a pers. name Pebid and the suffix -iauc
(ModW -iog) which was used
to denote possession or association. The name means
something like the
territory or fief belonging to or associated with
Pebid, who must have been
a local magnate or overlord of the cantref.
Answering your question, no I have never heard
anyone speak of Pebidiog.
