Since it comes from an Old Norse word starting JOT, this remains pure
folk etymology.

Ah, yes.  That is a problem for your theories.  They contradict.

The problem is that if the Israelites were not the Jews, and the
Israelites were the ones who went to Denmark (and they were the tribe
of DAN nonetheless per your other silly folk history site, why did it
come to be named after the Jews OR JUDAH LONG BEFORE THE KJV WAS
TRANSLATED - not that the Danes would have cared about an English
language translation).

Face it: your nincompoop theory is so full of contradictory holes that
there is no hope for it (or you).

This is so hilarious that it is sad.  Wales was settled by the Celts
before the Assyrians took over Israel.

You'd think people would learn some real history before they start
trying to invent some phony history to fill in gaps that aren't there.
