''Citrus maxima'' was originally called "shaddock", after the captain of a [[East India Company]] ship who introduced it to [[Jamaica]] in 1696.<ref name=AHD>[[American Heritage Dictionary]], 1973.</ref> Recently the word "pomelo" has become the more common name, although "pomelo" has historically been used for [[grapefruit]].

The etymology of the word "pomelo" is uncertain. It is thought to perhaps be an alteration of the Dutch ''pompelmoes'' (meaning ''Citrus maxima'') or alternatively, perhaps an alteration of a compound of ''pome'' ("apple") + ''melon''.<ref name="OED2008/06">“[http://dictionary.oed.com/cgi/entry/50183647 pomelo, ''n.'']” listed in the '''Oxford English Dictionary''' [<span style="font-variant:small-caps">Draft revision</span>; June 2008]</ref>
