Saint Cynllo is a Welsh saint, who lived in the 5th and 6th centuries. His feast day is 17 July.

He is variously given in the Bonedd y Saint as being a brother of Saint Teilo or a grandson of Coel Hen. Wade-Evans thought he should be identified with Kentinlau who accompanied Saint Cadfan from Brittany to Ceredigion. Cynllo's knee imprints are said to exist in a rock, near the farm Felin Gynllo, which lies just outside of Llangoedmor in Ceredigion. The miraculous foundling, the infant Taliesin sang, "Not an empty treasure is the prayer of Cynllo". There are other churches in Ceredigion dedicated to Cynllo at Llangynllo and Nantcwnlle, and also the Church of St Cynllo in the community of Nantmel in the county of Powys (formerly Radnorshire). The latter was almost totally rebuilt in the late 18th century.
