An ‘Alicorn’ is actually the name of a unicorn’s horn (actually coming from the italion for unicorn “liocorno”->”alicorno”. Which, interestingly, means ‘one horned lion’, as some variations of european unicorns where hybrids between lions and horses/deer/goats, with one horn.)

Later, it was used to try and name the hybrid of a pegasus and unicorn in modern fiction.
