Meidrim is a community located in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

It has a parish church, a Nonconformist chapel, two pubs, a primary school, a village green or common and a park. It also boasts a number of self-catering cottages in the surrounding area making it popular for tourists visiting Pembrokeshire National Park and the Brecon Beacons as well as a number of local walks.

The etymological root of Meidrim is contested though 'Mei' and 'trum' might equal May Ridge. Another possibility is 'Meidr' or 'Beidr' meaning track and 'im' meaning little. On the other hand it may be a reference to an early Christian Saint named Nailtrum, or as mentioned in a 12th Century poem, its meaning may be "half of the shoulder" of a hill. A further possibility is it stemming from a corruption of "My Dream".[original research?][1]
