Rishi Sunak has mentioned he’ll proceed to make use of the title Brecon Beacons for the nationwide park regardless of its title being modified to its Welsh model Bannau Brycheiniog.
The change was introduced earlier this month, with the organisation saying it might “better reflect the park and the world we live in today”.
But it has been criticised by some senior Tories, who accused the park of a symbolic try to look “trendy”.
Welsh Tory chief Andrew RT Davies additionally mentioned: “The Beacons are as recognisable outside of Wales as they are here. Why undermine that?”
Speaking forward of the Welsh Conservative Conference on Friday, Mr Sunak stood by these colleagues, saying “most people” wouldn’t comply with the title change.
The prime minister informed BBC Wales: “[I am] a big supporter of the Welsh language and Welsh culture.
“But on the subject of the Brecon Beacons, the very first thing to say is that is an internationally famend place to go to, attracts guests from all around the globe.
“It’s something we’re all really proud of across the UK.
“I’m going to maintain calling it the Brecon Beacons, and I’d think about most individuals will try this too.”
The Welsh title for the mid-Wales park interprets as “peaks of Brychan’s kingdom” – a reference to the fifth-century king within the area.
