Etymology[edit]

From Germānī +‎ -ia. Germani was an exonym applied by the Romans to a tribe (or nearby tribes) living around and east of the Rhine; it was first attested in the 1st century b.c. works of Julius Caesar and is of uncertain etymology. It was said by Strabo to derive from germānus (close kin; genuine), making it cognate with "germane" and "german", but this seems unsupported. Attempts to derive it from Germanic or Celtic roots are all problematic.[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ɡerˈmaː.ni.a/, [ɡɛrˈmäːniä]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /d͡ʒerˈma.ni.a/, [d͡ʒerˈmäːniä]
  • (file)
