Notes:
”Caledonia” is the Latin name the Romans gave Scotland. Caledonia is believed to be related to a Pictish tribe, the Caledonii. After Hadrian’s Wall was built by the Romans, Caledonia was north of the wall, Britannia was south. Many people who named their girls Caledonia believed they were of Scottish ancestry.
