Etymology[edit]

First attested as aladna in 828. Etymology unclear. Likely derived from a phytonym (compare Old Norse alað (food), aldin (edible fruit), Old Swedish alda (fruit-bearing oak)). A proposed derivation from a hydronym derived from Proto-Indo-European *alat- (shining, bending outward) is far-fetched. Not etymologically related to aal (poplar, Populus). Potentially related to Aalden.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈaːl.tə(n)/
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: Aal‧ten
  • Rhymes: -aːltən
