Scotland
Scotland named for the Scots, who settled there from Ireland 5c.-6c.; their name is of unknown origin. Latin Scotia began to appear 9c. as the name for the region, replacing older CALEDONIA (Cf. Caledonia), also named for the inhabitants at the time, whose name likewise is of unknown origin.
