Latvian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably via other European languages, ultimately a borrowing from Romanian român (Romanian) (cf. older variant rumân with u), itself a borrowing from Latin Romanus (Roman). The Romanians are culturally descended from the old Roman settlers in the Danube region; their language is a continuation of the local Vulgar Latin dialects.
