EtymologyEdit

Uncertain, possibly ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₂el- (to grow, rise) or from a non-Indo-European (perhaps pre-Roman Alpine substrate) or Celtic source (compare Proto-Celtic *albiyū f (alp) or Scottish Gaelic alp f (protuberance)).[1][2]

Compare Middle High German albe (high mountain), whence German Alb (mountainous area). Potentially related to Albanus or albus (white).
