Ethiopia History

It is not certain how old the name Ethiopia is; its earliest attested use is in the Iliad, where it appears twice, and in the Odyssey, where it appears three times. The earliest attested use in the region is as a Christianized name for the Kingdom of Aksum in the 4th century, in stone inscriptions of King Ezana. The Ge'ez name tyy and its English cognate are thought by some recent scholars to be derived from the Greek word Aithiopia, from Aithiops an Ethiopian, derived in turn from Greek words meaning of burned face"". However, the Book of Aksum, a Ge'ez chronicle compiled in the 15th century, states that the name is derived from ""'Ityopp'is"" a son of Cush, son of Ham, who according to legend founded the city of Axum. Pliny the Elder similarly states the tradition that the nation took its name from someone named Aethiops. A third etymology, suggested by the late Ethiopian scholar and poet laureate Tsegaye Gabre-Medhin, traces the name to the original black Egyptian words Et Op and Bia, or ""land of higher peace""."

In English and generally outside of Ethiopia, the country was also once historically known as Abyssinia, derived from Habesh, an early Arabic form of the Ethiosemitic name abat"

modern Habesha

the native name for the country's inhabitants. In a few languages

Ethiopia is still called by names cognate with ""Abyssinia
