Foreigner

外人 gaijin, “outsider”

gaikokujin (外国人), meaning “foreigner”.

外 soto outside

国 kuni country

人 hito person

Another word that was once used was

kōmōjin (紅毛人, literally “red-haired people”)

Haha. That could not be used here as the red haired, blond haired and black/brown haired are all natives.

I wouldnt used non-gael here either as the gaels or celts are relatively new historically.
