Old French[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From *galle, a borrowing from Frankish *galla (sore; wound; scab), from Proto-Germanic *gallô (a sore on the skin; a gall). Cognate with Old High German galla (ire; malignancy; wickedness), Old English gealla (skin wound), Old Norse galli (infirmity; weakness; affliction).

Etymology 2[edit]

Origin obscure. Likely of Germanic origin, perhaps via Vulgar Latin *gualare, *walare, from Frankish *wala (well). Alternatively, possibly derived from Frankish *wallōn (to surge; well up; bubble over; roll about), related to Old High German wallōn (to surge; flow out; hike; wander; travel). Possibly influenced by Frankish *gail (merry; lively; lustful), from Proto-Germanic *gailaz (merry, excited, lush, beautiful, lustful).
