Etymology[edit]

From Late Latin Visigothus, an invention of Cassiodorus, under the misapprehension that it meant "west Goths". The first element's origin is unclear, either deriving from a tribal name or from Proto-Germanic *westrą, *westraz, a Germanic base meaning "west."

Noun[edit]

Visigoth ‎(plural Visigoths)

  1. Any member of an ancient East Germanic tribe, one branch of the Goths (the Ostrogoths being the other), which participated in several wars with Rome and established a kingdom with Toulouse for its capital.
