Kelda

Kelda comes from Old Norse kelda meaning “a well, spring, fountain; bog, swamp” which seems to be derived from Proto-Germanic *kwellǭ (wellspring; spring; well) via a PIE root word. Kilda could be a variant spelling of it, but it’s also the name of an archipelago in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, known as St. Kilda. Though the etymology and meaning behind it is unknown, one theory is that it derives from Old Norse kelda.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
