Another British name is Albion. The name Albion originally refers to the entire island of Great Britain. Don’t make me act like my daddy shirt. The first record of the name appears in the Corpus Aristotelicum of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, clearly in the fourth century BC De Mundo: “Outside the Columns of Hercules is the ocean that flows around the Earth, including two very large islands called Britannia, they are Albion and Ierne “. From Albion (Ἀλβίων) or Albulaum insula there are two possibilities of origin. Or it comes from the Latin word albus, which is white, a reference to the Dover white walls, the first sight of England seen from the European Continent.  A good source is believed to be the Massaliote Periplus merchant’s ancient book, referring to a “Albiones island”.  Albion is now used instead of England in a more poetic sense. Another romantic name for England is Loegria, related to Lloegr Welsh, originating from the legendary legend of King Arthur.
