Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The name Londīnium is thought to be pre-Roman (and possibly pre-Celtic) in origin, but there is no consensus on what it means. It was common practice for Romans to adopt native names for new settlements. A common theory is that it derives from a hypothetical Celtic placename *Londinion which was probably derived from the personal name *Londinos, from the word *lond (wild).
