Galaktika (NGC 5194)

Etymology[edit]

Via other European languages, ultimately borrowed from Latin galaxias (galaxy; Milky way), itself a borrowing from Ancient Greek γαλαξίας (galaxías, Milky Way), from γάλα (gála, milk). The form with -ka suggests that the borrowing went through the adjectival form γαλακτικός (galaktikós), rather than directly from the noun (compare Russian гала́ктика (galáktika), the most likely proximal source).
