Abstract: Palaeo-Ligurian place-names of the type Alba, Old European river names Albis and the like, as well as their ablauting forms Olb- (> Orb- in Romance Ligurian) do not reflect directly Proto-Indo-European adjective *albho- ‘white’; rather, they all continue a Pre-PIE extended root *Hal-bh- ‘water’ cognate with Sumerian halbia (> Akkadian halpium ‘well, water mass, water hole’). A further analysis of *Hal-bh- leads to a comparison with PIE root *Hal- ‘nourish’. PIE suffixed form *HwaH-r- ‘water’ exhibits a similar diffusion.
