The Welsh word 'Glas' can mean blue, green or gray. Which makes it sound like really it is meant to describe the colour of the sea.

However it turns out that several languages use the same word for blue and green and that blue is one of the last colours to be given a specific designation.

Stonehenge's "Bluestones" are gray and Glasgow means "Green Hollow".
