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.

Subject: [Dyfed] Pem Dewisland
I am presently reading George Owen's Elizabethan
Pembrokeshire by B.E.Howells. It states that
"Dewisland is that which was in the ancient time
called the cantref of Pebidiog and so it is called of
all the Welshmen to this day."
It changed its name when given to the bishopric of St.
I had't heard of this before and wondered given that
Dewisland is in the Welshry, if Welsh speakers in
Pembrokeshire today called it that?
