EtymologyEdit

Said to be from Germanic *leitha- "canal"[1]. Leiden has historically been associated with the Roman outpost Lugdunum Batavorum and so it was thought the name Leiden had to be derived from this Latin name. This particular castellum was however closer to the town of Katwijk, whereas the Roman settlement near modern-day Leiden was called Matilo.[2]

Proper nounEdit

Leiden

  1. A city in South Holland on the Old Rhine, seat of a famous Dutch university.
