Naming of English Manor Houses

Set in present day, in the general vicinity of Cardiff, Wales.  I have a group of people moving into an Elizabethan Manor House that I have concocted, and I am not sure whether it needs a name, or how to name it.  Ought it to be in Welsh?  Do I need to make up a family to name it after?  I don't want to make it a place that actually exists, but I don't want it to be obvious that I completely concocted it out of nowhere.

Given the complete lack of seriousness in the actual storyline, and the fact that this detail has no effect whatsoever on the storyline, I shouldn't be so fussy over such a small detail, but I can't help myself.
