The name Dublin comes from the Irish word Dubhlinn, early Classical Irish Dúblin(n), which is now generally accepted to be a form of "dubh", meaning 'black', and linn (from Old Norse linne) a pool or mill-pond; hence Dubhlind/Duibhlín = 'black pool'. This tidal pool was located where the River Poddle entered the Liffey, on the site of present-day Wood Quay. In Modern Irish language usage, however it is usually called dún (or occasionally doon). The Viking settlement established in Dublin in 841 as long ago as 832 had grown to become Ireland's largest inland city by c. 930 when its population was estimated at between 10–15 thousand inhabitants.
