It's called Great Britain because the original Union was between England, Scotland and Wales, on the greater of the British Isles. It is not because we are full of ourselves, but rather because we inhabit the larger of the islands.
Hence why our country is known as The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
