septentrion (sep-TEM-tree-uhn) - n., (obs.) the northern regions, the North.


This one has been around since the late 1300s, originally as Septemtrio(u)n, adopted from Latin septentriō/septentriōnem, the northern regions, from septemtriōnēs/septentriōnēs, the seven stars of Ursa Major, from septem, seven + triōnēs, plowing oxen.
