Meaning & History

Name of an island off the west coast of Kintyre in Scotland.
Several theories exist regarding its etymology, the most prominent being a derivation of Norse Guðey meaning "God island." Other theories include a derivation of Norse Gjáey meaning "island of the geo" (geo being a cleft or chasm), though gjá normally written in Scottish Gaelic as geodha, the possibility of a derivation of the meaning "Gyða's isle" (Gyða being a Norse female name) and a suggestion of the name meaning "island of the good harbour."
