Scottish Gaelic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Celtic *gasliyā, from *gas, of uncertain ultimate origin, but compare French gouine (lesbian), and Proto-Brythonic *gwėɣin (sheath).[1] Borrowed as Welsh gast (a bitch). Pott has adduced Spanish galgo (greyhound), which, however, is founded on canis Gallicus. See gasradh for root.
