Some definitions of West Wales include only Pembrokeshiremarker, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshiremarker, an area called "South West Walesmarker" in the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics.

Historic use of the term

Historically, the term West Wales was applied to the Kingdom of Cornwall during the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain and the period of the Heptarchy. The Old English word Wealas, meaning "foreigners" in the sense of Britons, gave its name to Wales, and was also applied to Cornwall, as "West Wealas" meaning Western foreigners.
