Excerpt: Rockall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The origin of the name 'Rockall' is debatable but it has been suggested that it derives from the Gaelic 'Sgeir Rocail', meaning "skerry (or "sea rock") of roaring", although rocail can also be translated as "tearing" or "ripping".

Excerpt: Rockall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The origin of the name 'Rockall' is debatable but it has been suggested that it derives from the Gaelic 'Sgeir Rocail', meaning "skerry (or "sea rock") of roaring", although rocail can also be translated as "tearing" or "ripping". There may also be an etymological link with the Old Norse 'hrukka'. The first literary reference to the island, where it is called 'Rokol', is found in Martin Martin's A Description of the Western isles of Scotland published in 1703. In the book the author gives an account of a voyage to St Kilda and its proximity to Rockall: ". and from it lies Rokol, a small rock sixty leagues to the westward of St. Kilda; the inhabitants of this place call it 'Rokabarra'." Dutch mapmakers P. Plancius and C. Claesz show an island 'Rookol' northwest of Ireland in the their Map of New France and the Northern Atlantic Ocean (Amsterdam, c. 1594.) The name 'Rocabarraigh' is also used in Gaelic folklore for a mythical rock which is supposed to appear three times, the last being at the end of the world: "Nuair a thig Rocabarra ris, is dual gun tèid an Saoghal a sgrios."When Rocabarra returns, the world will likely come to be destroyed." It has most recently been suggested that the name is really Old Norse, and derives from the word *rok (as in Icelandic rok), meaning 'foaming sea', and kollR, meaning 'bald head', a word which appears in other local names in Scandinavian-speaking areas. The Gaelic name would then be derivable from the Norse form. The islet of Rockall makes up the eroded core of an extinct volcano (a volcanic plug), and is one of the few pinnacles of the surrounding Helens Reef. It is located 301.4 kilometres (187.3 mi), or 162.7 nmi, west of the islands of St. Kilda, Scotland. More: Books, , Volcanoes-Of-Europe~~Books-Llc, , , , , , , , , , General Books LLC
