- utopia:  Utopia means etymologically ‘noplace’. It was coined by the English statesman and scholar Sir Thomas More from Greek ou ‘not’ and tópos ‘place’ (source of English topic). He used it as the name of an imaginary island whose inhabitants had organized their society along the lines of what he regarded as a theoretically ideal commonwealth, which he described in his book Utopia 1516. The word was first used as a more general term for an ‘ideal place’ in the early 17th century.
- utopia (n.)

Extended to any perfect place by 1610s. Commonly, but incorrectly, taken as from Greek eu- "good" (see eu-) an error reinforced by the introduction of dystopia.
