Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Celtic *albiyo- (world), from Proto-Indo-European *albʰós (white). Cognate with Latin albus (white), Ancient Greek ἀλφός (alphós, whiteness, white leprosy) and Hittite 𒀠𒉺𒀸 (alpas, cloud). The primary meaning of Common Celtic word is “upper world” (as opposed to underworld), with semantic development similar to e.g. Russian свет (svet, world; light).
