  • The term originally referred to Britain as a whole but was later restricted to Caledonia, ultimately giving Scotland if modern Scottish the Gaelic name, Alba.
  • It has another possible etymology, Celtic linguist Xavier Delamarre arguing it originally meant "the world above, the visible world+ rather than "the world below".
