Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From the Arabic الْأَنْدَلُس (al-ʾandalus), الْأَنْدُلُس (al-ʾandulus, Iberia), from Vulgar Latin *Vandalicia (land of the Vandals), or possibly from Vandalic *Wandalitia (land of the Vandals) (or *Vandalitia) of the same Latin source, from Proto-Germanic *wandilaz. Alternatively, Halm (1989) suggests it may derive from (unattested) Gothic *𐌻𐌰𐌽𐌳𐌰𐌷𐌻𐌰𐌿𐍄𐍃 (*landahlauts), from 𐌻𐌰𐌽𐌳 (land, land) + 𐌷𐌻𐌰𐌿𐍄𐍃 (hlauts, allotment, inheritance).

Proper noun[edit]
