Galaktika (NGC 5194)

Etymology[edit]

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