There are many small islands in Scotland called Flodday (Scots Gaelic: Flodaigh) or similar and this list provides a guide to their location. The derivation of the name is from the Old Norse floti meaning 'raft' or 'float'.[1] The similar island names Fladda and Flotta are also from the Norse flatr and mean 'flat island'.[2] Usage is not always consistent in external sources.
