The Great And Little Ormes

Llandudno lies between two rocky headlands- the Great Orme and the Litlle Orme. Here's the great Orme.

And here's the Little Orme.

And here's The Little Orme again, shot from the Great Orme. Yes I climbed to the top and it's very steep and my legs are killing me. 

Looks like a great serpent sliding out to sea, doesn't it? I've got it into my head that the word "orme" is related to the old English "wurm" meaning serpent or dragon- but I can't find any  conformation.
