Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese janella (window), from Vulgar Latin *januella (window), diminutive of the word jānua, alternative spelling of Latin iānua (door, double-doored entrance), from Iānus (Janus, Roman god of gates and doorways), perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *h₁ey- (to go).

Cognate with Galician xanela and Mirandese jinela.
