anyone know anything about the etymology of this one, or did Gaeldome just name a country after him when he died?

An Eilbheis is related to Latin Helvetia which itself has Celtic roots. See MindaugasP13's explanation of Helvetia's Celtic roots at https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/36049799/The-river-in-Switzerland
