Attested: RC Maiona
Where: An island off west Scotland, mentioned near the end of RC’s list in the sequence Grandena Maiona Longis, which makes Maiona highly likely to be Mull.
Name origin: As R&C pointed out, Maiona is very similar to Latin maiora ‘larger’ (feminine to agree with insula ‘island’), appropriate to Mull as the second largest of the Inner Hebrides.
Notes: It is likely that Malea was also an ancient name for the isle of Mull, but Maulion was not.
