Beautuful Wales! <3
"braich" means 'arm' perhaps here meaning a feature in the landscape? "Melyn" means 'yellow' possibly referring to forest related flora?

According to Iwan Arfon Jones’ ‘Place-names in Snowdonia’, ‘braich’ (arm) is derived from Irish ‘braighe’ (upper part), Latin ‘bracchium’, and in geographical terms refers to a spur, hill or mountain.
