A panorama of Montreal.

Etymology[edit]

French from Montréal; From Mont Royal (Mount Royal), after the nearby mountain by Jacques Cartier. It is uncertain how Royal became -real. A common explanation is that real is the Middle French form of Royal, but Cartier himself recorded le mont Royal when he named it. It may have perhaps been from the Italian G.B. Rasmusio's 1556 map translating the name to Italian as Monte Real.[1]
