The Celts called Britain "Albion" ANSWER This question is a bit flawed as there were no real people called Celts. It is really a modern word used to describe a movement. But the feeling is that the Island was called Albion. Certainly this is recorded. The actual occupants were probably a North European Germanic people called the Brythons, who the other Germanic people call the Brittisc. Where Britain comes from.
