Attested:  RC Exosades

Where:  Islands off western Scotland.  Probably the outer Hebrides.

Name origin:  Probably from Greek εξωσις ‘putting out’ or Latin exosus ‘hateful’.

Notes: RC follows Exosades with a parting shot ubi et gemmae nascuntur ‘also where gems are born’, which may apply to all the western islands.  See under Iona.
