"Two or three Pictish kings had borne the name of Alpin, the first being on his father's side a Dalriad Scot: but no other instance of it is found among the Dalriad Scots until we come to the father of Kenneth (Nicholson," KR., p. 82). "Whatever the origin of the name (it can have nothing to do with Alba), it has survived into the modern language as Alpan, without a trace of British phonetic development" (Prof. Fraser, SGS., n, p. 199). Alpinus, canon of Dunblane, 1287 (Inchaffray, p. Ill), was elected to the bishopric after the death of Bishop William in 1296 (Dowden, p. 200).
