Aberaeron (formerly anglicised Aberayron) is a seaside resort town in Ceredigion, Wales. Situated between Aberystwyth and Cardigan, it is home to the headquarters of Ceredigion County Council. The population was 1,520 in 2001, reducing to 1,422 at the 2011 census. An electoral ward exists with an identical population. The name is from Welsh Aberaeron, meaning "mouth of the River Aeron", derived from the Middle Welshaer - 'slaughter', which gave its name to Aeron, who is believed to have been a Welsh god of war.
