Etymology[edit]

From Late Latin Visigothus, an invention of Cassiodorus, under the misapprehension that it meant "west Goths". The first element's origin is unclear, either deriving from a tribal name or from Proto-Germanic *westrą, *westraz, a Germanic base meaning "west."

Noun[edit]

Visigoth (plural Visigoths)

  1. Any member of an ancient East Germanic tribe, one branch of the Goths (the Ostrogoths being the other), which participated in several wars with Rome and established a kingdom with Toulouse for its capital.
