The glaucous gull is a large gull, the second largest gull in the world which breeds in the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and the Atlantic coasts of Europe. The genus name is from Latin ''Larus'' which appears to have referred to a gull or other large seabird. The specific ''hyperboreus'' is Latin for "northern" from the Ancient Greek ''Huperboreoi'' people from the far north "Glaucous" is from Latin ''glaucus'' and denotes a bluish-green or grey colour.
