Etymology[edit]

From Old Galician/Old Portuguese galego, from Latin Gallaecus (a Galician), from older Callaecus (a person of a local tribe from NW Iberia), from a local substrate language; either from Proto-Celtic *kallī- (wood) or from a descendant of Proto-Indo-European *kl̥H-ní-s (hill), from Proto-Indo-European *kelH-, and a relational suffix *-aecus of Lusitanian or Hispano-Celtic origin.[1]

The geographical name Gallaecia itself was derived from the ethnonym Gallaecus.
