Etymology

edit

After William Eden, 1st Baron Auckland, patron of the founder of the city, after Bishop Auckland, formerly North Auckland in the UK, the site of Auckland Castle, from Ackland, possibly from Old Norse alka (auk) or from Middle English ak (oak) + land; similar, if not the same, to Oakland. In view of an earlier form, Alclit, this may represent an adaptation of a Cumbric [Term?] form, equivalent to Proto-Brythonic *alo- (rock) + Proto-Brythonic * clọ:tā, a river name.
