Random information on the term “Ancient Briton”:

Albion is an alternative name for the island of Great Britain. It is sometimes used poetically to refer to the island, but has fallen out of common use in English. The name for Scotland in most of the Celtic languages is related to Albion: Alba in Scottish Gaelic, Albain (genitive Alban) in Irish, Nalbin in Manx and Alban in Welsh and Cornish. These names were later Latinised as Albania and Anglicised as Albany, which were once alternative names for Scotland.

New Albion and Albionoria (“Albion of the North”) were briefly suggested as names of Canada during the period of the Canadian Confederation. Arthur Phillip, first leader of the colonisation of Australia, originally named Sydney Cove “New Albion”, but later the colony acquired the name “Sydney”. Sir Francis Drake gave the name New Albion to what is now California when he landed there in 1579.

The Common Brittonic name for the island, Hellenised as Albíōn (Ἀλβίων) and Latinised as Albiōn (genitive Albionis), derives from the Proto-Celtic nasal stem *Albi̯iū (oblique *Albiion-) and survived in Old Irish as Albu (genitive Albann). The name originally referred to Britain as a whole, but was later restricted to Caledonia (giving the modern Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland, Alba). The root *albiio- is also found in Gaulish and Galatian albio- (“world”) and Welsh elfydd (elbid, “earth, world, land, country, district”). It may be related to other European and Mediterranean toponyms such as Alpes, Albania or the river god Alpheus (meaning “whitish”). It has two possible etymologies. It may derive from the Proto-Indo-European root *albho-, meaning “white” (cf. Ancient Greek ἀλφός, Latin albus ). This is perhaps in reference to the white southern shores of the island – visible from mainland Europe and a landmark at the narrowest crossing point. A different viewpoint comes from Celtic linguist Xavier Delamarre, who argued that it originally meant “the world above, the visible world”, in opposition to “the world below”, i.e., the underworld. Alternatively it may derive from the Proto-Indo-European root *alb-, meaning “hill”.
