: With reference to the phrase 'to be at Loggerheads' this originated in a small village called Loggerheads, in Wales, on the road between Mold and Ruthin, in which there were two families who could not decide on a land border and were constantly 'at Loggerheads' and there is a statue at the side of the main road that marks the boundary of their two estates.

It was the towns (there are several Loggerheads in the UK) that were named after the word/phrase, not the other way around. Please see:
