Dy’Gool is to be avoided because nothing has been omitted.
The prefix ‘day’ in traditional Cornish in festivals and days of the week is de, du or dew. It represents the reflex
of an oblique case of the word for ‘day’. It is not an abbreviated form of the
nominative dydh, dedh.

In the texts on finds
dugol Myhal ‘Michaelmas’ BM
woyl Myhal < Goyl Myhal Michaelmas BK.
Degl Stûl ‘Epiphany’ Lhuyd. 

My preference would be for Degol Pyran or Degol Peran. Division into two words,
is probably advisable, given that there seem to be two stresses in the phrase.
