There is a very good "reason for it".  The Cornish form (I favour Eglosveryan) indicates the pronunciation, while the Anglicized St Buryan is ambiguous in this respect.

How much support are people finding for Cornish to be used in public signage? I recently mailed St Buryan Parish council to ask why our very nice brand new village sign didn't include somehwere the name in Cornish, as this wouldn't have added to the cost. The answer was simply that "they saw no reason for it" and that "of the eleven councillors, ten were St Buryan born and bred".
