According to Laurence Gardner the term Celtic or Keltae is a Greco Roman word for stranger! It certainly was not any word used by the people of the north themselves to refer to themselves because they were not strangers to themselves or their neighbors. These people were only strangers to the Romans and southern peoples and the term Keltae simply grew out to take over referring to all the peoples of the north which were "GAELIC" not Celtic and all this thread and I never saw one word about Gaelic people which were the people you are speaking about not Celtic. Use the word our people used themselves not the one given to us by the Romans for crying out loud!
