Etymology[edit]

From English albatross, probably from Spanish or Portuguese alcatraz (pelican), probably derived from Arabic الْغَطَّاس(al-ḡaṭṭās, the diver); or from Portuguese alcatruz (water wheel bucket), from Arabic الْقَادُوس(al-qādūs), from Ancient Greek κάδος (kádos, pail, jar), in reference to the pouch of a pelican. In either case, altered under the influence of the Latin word albus (white).
