Usage notes

[edit]
  • The plural form saint is now only used to refer to living people.
  • When used as a title, sant comes before the name of a male saint, e.g. Sant Luc (Saint Luke), but can come after the names of certain Celtic saints, e.g. Dewi Sant (Saint David). For the titles of female saints, santes is used, often preceded by the definite article y, e.g. y Santes Fair (Saint Mary). The variants san and sain are also found occasionally, often in place names, e.g. Llansanffraid, Sain Ffagan (St Fagans).

Derived terms

[edit]
[edit]
  • sain (saint)
  • san (saint)
