Gender: F Origin of Scotia: Latin term for Scotland

Place names can be a nod to your cultural heritage or a commemoration of a favorite destination, but you may not want to give your child a name she or he will share with a country or a city or a river. One intriguing alternative: Choose an ancient or alternative name for a favorite place. Scotia is the Latin name for Scotland and its people. Caledonia is another possibility, used by the Romans for the land north of Hadrian's Wall in England, which marked the upper boundary of the Roman Empire.
