Rumah Adat Aceh

After around 400 AD, Northern Sumatra was named by Arabs: Rami (Ramni), by the Chinese: Lan-li, Lan-wu-li and Nan-poli. The previous name of Aceh is Lam Muri, by Malay history: Lambri (lamiri) and by Marco Polo called Lambri. After the arrival of the Portuguese, the name Lambri was no longer used, becoming Achem (Aceh). Portuguese and Italians usually say Achem, Achen, Acen, and Arabs mention it again: Asji, or also with Dachem, Dagin, Dacin. French writers say: Achem, Achen, Achin, Acheh, English people call: Atcheen, Achheen. Achin and finally the Dutch people mentioned: Achem, Achim, Atchin, Atchein, Atjin, Atsjiem, Atsjeh and finally became Atjeh.

The Acehnese themselves call themselves “Atjeh”. Aceh is also written in Malay History, Malay Law, in old Aceh letters (Sarakata) and in Atjeh currencies such as gold (derham), and tin (keueh).
