Elete

Attested:  RC Elete

Where:  An island off western Scotland.  Coll, around NM2158, would allow RC’s list of names to follow a plausible track across the map.

Name origin:  R&C and R&S could suggest nothing reasonable, but ελετος ‘that can be taken or caught’ might refer to hunting of seabirds or seals.
