The name “Edinburgh” appears to derive from the Celtic British place name Eidyn, mentioned in a number of medieval Welsh sources. The name “Eidyn” may survive today in other toponyms, such as Dunedin and Carriden (from Caer Eidyn), fifteen miles to the west.
Present-day Edinburgh was the location of Din Eidyn, a dun or hillfort associated with the kingdom of the Gododdin. The modern Scottish Gaelic name “Dùn Eideann” derives directly from the British Din Eidyn; the English and Scots form are similar, adding the element -burgh, from the Old English burh, also meaning fort. Some sources claim Edinburgh’s name is derived from an Old English form such as Eadwinesburh, in reference to the 7th century king Edwin of Northumbria.”
