From Latin albus (“white”). Aside from some very early Old Spanish texts, it is only used as a Latinism, or in a poetic or literary sense (as with most other western Romance languages). Even in Old Spanish, this form was semi-learned or maintained a conservative pronunciation; the form obo was the popularly inherited one, completely transmitted in an oral fashion from Latin, but only remained as an element in some toponyms/placenames. However, some terms derived from or related to albo have survived in Spanish. Doublet of álbum.
