From Latin Britannia (Britain).


Proper noun[edit]

Bretanya f

  1. Brittany (region of northwest France)
  2. (historical) Brittania (Great Britain and Brittany)

Usage notes[edit]

The relationship between Great Britain and Brittany (Little Britain) is clearer in Catalan than in English, at the cost of lacking a one word synonym for Great Britain. To refer to Roman Britain in Catalan, a later reborrowing from the same Latin origin, Britània, is used.
