Wikipedia, 3 Sept. 2008: (Isles of Scilly; Cornish name Ynysek Syllan; correct name is the Isles of Scilly, or simply Scilly; Scillonians consider the terms Scilly Isles and Scillies to be incorrect. In 1890 the Isles of Scilly Rural District Council (the RDC) was formed as a sui generis unitary authority, outside the administrative county of Cornwall. In 1972 the RDC was renamed as the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)
